Unresolved Issues of the 20th Century: The Quest of the Repatriation of Nazi Looted Art, with Donald Burris

7pm on December 5, 2017

Ticket Info: $8 members, $10 general public

 

Speaker Donald S. Burris, is one of a small group of American lawyers who have dedicated their careers to this fight for almost twenty years. He will describe his firm’s well-known and successful attempt to retrieve the “Woman in Gold” painting for its rightful owner, the incredible Maria Altmann. As Mr. Burris will describe, the fate of looted works of art has been especially controversial. Transnational claims for the recovery of artwork, particularly iconic pieces, are still in some contexts sometimes perceived as unseemly or directly conflicting with national heritage and the legitimate interests of cultural institutions.
