An unknown work by French artist Marc Chagall was found in the cache of supposedly Nazi looted art. The Jewish Chagall left France during WWII. He returned after the war and lived out the rest of his life in France.
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.
