A Claude Monet painting that the Nazis forced a Jewish family to sell in 1935 was auctioned at Sotheby’s in London, with the seller sharing the proceeds with heirs of the pre-war owners. The anonymous seller’s family acquired “Au Parc Monceau” in good faith after the war and negotiated a settlement with the heirs of Margret Levy-Kainer. The work fetched $5,240,900.
