Abstract:

"The Nazis systematically looted Europe's treasurehouses to accumulate a magnificent hoard of important and priceless art collections. Much loot was recovered at war's end, but vast quantities disappeared again, pillaged by Stalin's Red Army and other Allies alike. To this day, many of those who suffered the loss of their collections remain impoverished and empty-handed." "The Lost Masters is an account of the tragic looting of Europe and the victims' attempts to reclaim the precious art heritage in the face of indifference from governments and the international art trade. It also includes the story of how courage possibly saved from destruction the most famous painting in the world, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa."--BOOK JACKET.
