5/06/2014 In March 2012, 121 framed and 1,258 unframed artworks were seized by the District Prosecutor of Augsburg from an apartment in Schwabing, Munich. The artworks, suspected of being looted by the Nazis around World War II, were discovered in the possession of Cornelius Gurlitt, the son of art historian and dealer in degenerate art Hildebrand Gurlitt. The cache included works by Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Otto Dix and others. In February 2014, Gurlitt had his lawyers secure additional paintings in his Salzburg home and investigate their provenance. On 7 April 2014 an agreement was reached by which the seized artwork is to be returned to Gurlitt in exchange for his co-operation with the government-led task force charged with determining which of the pieces was stolen and returning them to the rightful heirs
