Two paintings from the workshop of Dieric Bouts have been restituted to Poland from a museum in Spain. The Mater Dolorosa and Ecce Homo had formerly been in the Czartoryski collection in the Polish village of Gołuchów, but disappeared during World War Two. (Of course, the greatest Czartoryski treasure still missing is Raphael's Portrait of a Man, so we can keep dreaming it might still be out there somewhere).
