A New York art dealer will send at least one art work or cash to the Seattle Art Museum to settle a disagreement over a Matisse painting looted by the Nazis. The museum acquired “Odalisque” in 1991 from collectors who purchased it from the dealer Knoedler & Co. in 1954. The museum returned the painting to the heirs of Paul Rosenberg, a Jewish art dealer who fled France in 1941 during the Nazi occupation.
