When Hitler came to power in 1933, he removed so-called "degenerate" art from German society, and many artists fled the country. Thousands of great artworks disappeared, and only a fraction of them were rediscovered after World War II. What happened to them? In 2013, the German government confiscated roughly 1300 works by Henri Matisse, George Grosz, Claude Monet, and other masters from the apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt, the reclusive son of one of Hitler's art dealers. For two years, the government kept the discovery a secret. While revealing the fate of those works, Mary Lane tells the definitive story of art in the Third Reich and Germany's ongoing struggle to right the wrongs of the past.
