tags: Nazi, Looted Art
A museum in the Swiss capital will announce next week its decision on the controversial Nazi-looted art collection of the late Cornelius Gurlitt.
Gurlitt, who for decades kept a secret trove of masterpieces before agreeing to return works that once belonged to Jews under the Nazi regime, died in May and left his collection to Kunstmuseum Bern.
The museum, which has yet to decide whether it will accept the collection, will hold a joint press briefing on Nov. 24 in Berlin with German State Secretary for Art Monika Gruetters and Bavarian Justice Minister Winfried Bausback, it said in a statement today. The president of the board of trustees, Christoph Schaeublin, will represent the museum at the event.
