Italian painter Canaletto
This 18th-century sketch is by Italian artist Canaletto, a painter famous for his landscapes.
Hidden for decades, a fraction of the arts works uncovered by German authorities last year, were projected on a large screen at a press conference in Augsburg on Nov. 5. Some 1,400 pieces were discovered in the apartment of the son of Nazi art collection Hildebrand Gurlitt, but only a few of them were seen on Tuesday.
