London’s Tate Gallery is facing what is believed to be its first claim for an artwork allegedly looted by the Nazis. The heirs of a Jewish banker who was shot to death by the Nazis in 1937 are claiming that an early 18th-century work valued at $300,000, “View of Hampton Court Palace,” by Dutch master Jan Griffier the Elder, was owned by their father.
