Dutch museums identify art looted from Jewish owners during WWII

A four-year review in the Netherlands has found that 139 pieces of art in Dutch museums may have been forcibly taken from Jewish owners during the World War II period.

The works, including a Matisse, were listed on a dedicated website on October 29. The rightful owners, or their heirs, can apply to the Dutch Restitutions Committee to have them returned.
