Return to an address of the Honourable the House of Commons dated 28 November 2007 for the report of the Spoliation Advisory Panel in respect of three Rubens paintings now in the possession of the Courtauld Institute of Art, London by David Hirst( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report deals with a claim by the granddaughter of the late Franz W. Koenigs of the Netherlands in respect of three paintings now in the possession of the Courtauld Institute of Art. The claimant contended that the family lost possession in 1940 when the paintings, which had been loaned to a Museum, and had been used as collateral to secure a loan from a bank, were called in when the bank went into liquidation. The paintings were sold to a collector, Count Antione Seilern, who subsequently bequeathed them to the the Home House Society (the predecessor of the Samuel Courtauld Trust) in 1978. The claimant submitted that the paintings were undervalued when sold, as a result of a conspiracy by two persons connected with the museum, and that the sale must have been made under duress. The Panel, echoing a decision by the Dutch Restitution Committee, finds that the family were deprived of the paintings neither by theft, nor by forced sale or by sale at an undervalue. The Panel recommends that the claim be rejected

Return to an address of the honourable the House of Commons dated Wednesday 11 June 2008 for the report of the Spoliation Advisory Panel in respect of pieces of porcelain now in the possession of the British Museum, London and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge by Great Britain( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report deals with a claim by Mrs Bertha L. Gutmann of Caldwell, New Jersey, the niece and sole heir of Heinrich Rothberger concerning two pieces of porcelain which, it was asserted, were seized from him in Vienna in 1938 by the Gestapo. The pieces now reside in the British Museum, London and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. Having examined evidence provided by the claimant and the Museums, the Panel concludes that the pieces were obtained legally by the museums. The Panel then has to give due weight to the moral strength of the claimant's case. It concludes that in both cases the claimant has a strong moral right to the items. Restitution of the British Museum piece is debarred by section 5 of the British Museum Act 1963, so the Panel recommends, as agreed by the parties, that the government makes an ex gratia payment of £18,000 and that the British Museum acknowledges the history of the piece whenever it is published or exhibited. The Panel recommends that the Fitzwilliam piece should be returned to the claimant
