Exhibition discriminating thieves nazi-looted art and restitution enfilade dolor sacro lumbar causas

Discriminating Thieves: Nazi-Looted Art and Restitution follows the journey of four works of art that were once in the hands of the Nazis. The exhibition explores the circumstances surrounding their dieta para radiografia de columna lumbosacra thefts, their return to their rightful owners, and their subsequent legal acquisition by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.

During World War II, Adolf Hitler and the Nazis looted art on an unprecedented scale. They stole thousands of objects across Europe between 1933 and 1945, keeping art for their own collections or stashing art for use in the museum Hitler planned to build. Other works, considered by the Nazis to be immoral, or ‘degenerate’, were destroyed, sold, or used as Nazi propaganda.


“This exhibition was extensively researched by MacKenzie Mallon, the Nelson-Atkins preparacion para radiografia de columna lumbosacra sanitas provenance specialist who is gaining a national reputation for her work in this important field,” said Julián Zugazagoitia, Menefee D. and Mary Louise Blackwell CEO and Director of the Nelson-Atkins. “This is very specific and painstaking research into ownership that is of utmost importance in the museum world and uncovers fascinating stories of the journey this art has traveled.”

Most of the looted objects were recovered by the Allies escoliosis lumbar tratamiento after the war, many by a group of art curators and scholars known as the Monuments Men. Paul Gardner, the first director of the Nelson-Atkins and himself a Monuments Man, described his journey to an Italian castle that had once housed an important art collection, and his dismay at finding that the Germans had reached it before him. Gardner wrote hernia discal lumbar cie 10: “The custodian told us that experienced German officer-experts had systematically broken open all the bales and boxes, and had taken the cream of the collection. The Germans have proven all along to be discriminating thieves.”

Augustin Pajou, Jean-François Ducis, 1779, terracotta on marble socle, bust 23 inches high (Kansas City: Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, acquired through the McGreevy Family through the Westport Fund in honor of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Nelson-Atkins, F83-22).

The focus exhibition is comprised of four works of art: Augustus the Strong, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland by Nicolas de Largillière; Still Life with Guelder Roses by Pierre Bonnard; Jean-François Ducis, a sculpture by Augustin Pajou; and Masks hernia discal lumbar tratamiento by the German artist Emil Nolde.

Emile Nolde’s Masks, however, was declared ‘degenerate’ because of its modern, expressionistic style, even though Nolde was a member of the Nazi party. It was removed from the Folkwang que es rotoescoliosis lumbar Museum in Essen, Germany in 1937 and given to a German art dealer, Karl Buchholz, to sell. The painting remained in his possession throughout the rest of the war, and he transferred it to a New York art gallery following an agreement among German museums not to pursue the restitution of ‘degenerate’ art that had been sold abroad.

“ Masks remained in that gallery until the Nelson-Atkins purchased it in 1954,” said Mallon, Specialist, Provenance. “There is a human story behind each of these objects, and uncovering that ownership history is the purpose of provenance research. I think it’s important to remember the very personal estenosis lumbar cirugia cost of Nazi art looting during World War II and the subsequent return to the owners or their descendants and the museum’s legal acquisition of the works.”
