Title
Bill Hinchberger, 'Brazil uncovers Nazi war loot', Art News, September 1998, p. 67

Summary
Over twenty-four looted works of art belonging to European Jews were taken to Brazil. These included a Picasso and a Monet. The paintings, which were confiscated from an unnamed art gallery in Sao Paulo, were traced back to an Austrian, Thadeus Grauer, who moved to Brazil in 1941, and to the Fischer Gallery in Switzerland. A further twenty-five paintings thought to have been World War II loot, surfaced at the Rio Grande do Sul Museum of Art in Porto Alegre.
