More Hidden Modern Art is Found in Germany

The news this week is about the announcement in Augsburg, Germany that 1500 paintings have been found in Munich that were apparently either confiscated or purchased by the Nazis during World War II. Here's the link to the New York Times article. 

In January 2010 contractors excavating to build a new subway station near Berlin's city hall found eleven bronzes in the rubble of a building destroyed in World War II. The bronzes are now being exhibited at the Neues Museum, amid Berlin’s archaeological collection. That story, written up in the New York Times, is available here.
