15 May 2013: The Bavarian State Painting Collections, Munich, agreed to return two watercolours to the heirs of Professor Curt Glaser, having determined conclusively that the auction of his art collection and library were entirely due to Nazi persecution. Their research also concluded that a painting from the George Behrens collection was the subject of a forced sale between 1935 and 1940 and should also be restituted.
