The Israel Museum said a British Jew is the rightful owner of a work by Camille Pissarro that is part of its collection. Gerta Silberberg, who is the heir to works that the Nazis forced her father-in-law to sell in 1935, said she would allow the Jerusalem-based museum to continue to display the French Jewish painter’s “Boulevard Montmartre, Spring 1897.”
