The National Gallery of Art in Washington announced that one of its paintings went through the hands of a well-known Nazi art dealer, according to the World Jewish Congress. The work, “Still Life with Fruit and Game” by 16th century Flemish painter Frans Synders, was handled by Karl Haberstock, whom the WJC called “one of the most notorious of Nazi art dealers,” adding that the work may well have been looted from Jewish owners.
