About the event

Richard Aronowitz-Mercer (European Head of Restitution, Sotheby’s) will talk both about his work in provenance research in the setting of an international auction house and about his encounters with examples of so-called ‘degenerate art’ over the last twenty years of work in this field: works that were either taken out of museums during the 1937-1938 Degenerate Art Action or that were looted from private collections both because their owners were Jewish and because they were works by the Moderns.
