A collection of artworks restituted through the efforts of the World Jewish Congress fetched just over $500,000, more than twice the pre-sale estimate, at a Sotheby’s auction in London. The 54 works on paper by Austrian artist Max Klinger from the Gustav and Clara Stein Kirstein Collection were part of the first group of Nazi-looted art to be restituted through the WJC’s Commission for Art Recovery.
