The case of a Picasso painting, taken by the Nazis from its Jewish owners, has been settled out of court for $6.5 million. The decision came after four years of legal battles in Los Angeles and Chicago. “Femme en blanc,” painted by Picasso in 1922, was bought a few years later by Carlota and Robert Landsberg, a Jewish couple in Berlin. In 1939, the Landsbergs sent the painting to a Paris art dealer for safekeeping.
