9780865652637: Lost Lives, Lost Art: Jewish Collectors, Nazi Art Theft, and the Quest for Justice
Reseña del editor:

The legendary names include Rothschild, Mendelssohn, Bloch-Bauer--distinguished bankers, industrialists, diplomats, and art collectors. Their diverse taste ranged from manuscripts and musical instru-ments to paintings by Old Masters and the avant-garde. But their stigma as Jews in Nazi Germany and occupied Europe doomed them to exile or death in Hitler's concentration camps. Here, after years of meticulous research, Melissa Muller ("Anne Frank: The Biography") and Monika Tatzkow ("Nazi Looted Art") present the tragic, compelling stories of 15 Jewish collectors, the dispersal of their extraordinary collections through forced sale and/or confiscation, and the ongoing efforts of their heirs to recover their inheritance. For every victory in the effort to return these works to their rightful heirs, there are daunting defeats and long court battles. This real-life legal thriller follows works by Rembrandt, Klimt, Pissarro, Kandinsky, and others.

Praise for "Lost Lives, Lost Art: "
"A heartbreaking and enthralling story of the brutal and mindless Nazi destruction of a singularly cultivated caste of rich German and Austrian Jews and the pillage of their great art collections: a world that was lost and could never be recreated." Louis Begley
"Each chapter focuses on a single collector. . . the adulatory profiles [are] matched with an attractive layout and an abundance of well-selected images." "Wall Street Journal
"
"The book is meticulously researched, brilliantly and dispassionately written, and is in all likelihood a game changer in the world of art, art provenance, and art restitution that will resound for years to come." "ForeWord Reviews
""Richly illustrated with excellent art reproductions and family photographs, this is a solid addition to works on Nazi art plundering and the world of art restitution, ownership, and property rights. This will be of great interest to readers wanting to know more about upper-class Austrian and German Jews. Recommended." "Library Journal "

Críticas:

""New York Mid-Century" is a sparkling account of Gotham at the moment it became the cultural center of the world. It is the work of three masters of their genres. In their hands the mid-century city leaps to life and its history engages us on every page."--Donald L. Miller, author of Supreme City: How Jazz Age Manhattan Gave Birth to Modern America
