Painting looted by Nazis is recovered by family of murdered Polish owner





A 17th-century painting had to be withdrawn from a Christie’s auction after the Polish Embassy in London revealed that it had been looted by the Nazis.

Pieter de Grebber’s Study of a Reading Man will be returned to the family of Abe Gutnajer, an antiques dealer murdered in the Warsaw ghetto in 1942 by the Nazis, who confiscated his property.
