Federal Court of Justice verdicts on art database for possible Nazi looting Culture & Entertainment

Karlsruhe (dpa) – The Federal Court of Justice (BGH) today wishes to announce its decision on whether a database entry regarding possible Nazi loot and an Interpol search constitute imperfections in a work of art. An art collector has filed a complaint with the authorities because he considers his property to be compromised.

As part of an exhibition in Baden-Baden, he discovered that the “Calabrian Coast” by painter Andreas Achenbach (1815-1910) from his possession was in the so-called Lost Art Database. The criminal police organization Interpol was also looking for him. The painting belonged to Jewish art dealer Max Stern, who was banned from working by the Nazis and sold the painting.
