A North Carolina museum concluded that a 16th-century painting in its collection was stolen by the Nazis from a Jewish industrialist. The North Carolina Museum of Art, which removed the work from its display, last week notified the Holocaust Claims Processing Office in New York of its finding. The decision came nearly a year after the World Jewish Congress alerted the museum that the painting, “Madonna and Child in a Landscape,” was looted by the Nazis.
