German Recluse Agrees to Return Looted Art


Cornelius Gurlitt, the art collector who hoarded works looted by the Nazis, has instructed his court-appointed adviser to hand back items looted from Jewish owners, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.

“If there are works under justified suspicion of being stolen art, then please give them back to their Jewish owners,” Gurlitt instructed lawyer Christoph Edel, according to a statement by Gurlitt’s spokesman.
