Experts believe "Seated Woman" is by French painter Henri Matisse, although the work is not listed in indexes of his work. Matisse is one of the more recognizable names whose work was discovered.
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.
