A painting looted during the Holocaust era will be returned to its prewar owner. “Le Procession” was one of approximately 1,000 paintings owned by Ismar Littmann that was sold at a forced sale in Berlin in 1934, when Nazis ordered that Jewish-owned art be sold at rock-bottom prices. The return of the artwork to Littmann’s heirs was processed by the Holocaust Claims Office of the New York State Banking Department.
