The family of a prominent Parisian art dealer is demanding a Norwegian museum return a Henri Matisse painting seized by Nazis under the direction of Hermann Goering in World War II, in the latest dispute over art stolen from Jews during WWII. The Henie Onstad Art Centre says it does not dispute that Paul Rosenberg once owned the painting but argues it is uncertain whether the family still have rights to the painting, but Art Loss Register, which tracks lost and stolen artworks, Director Chris Marinello slammed the Henie Onstad art museum for “stonewalling” and said “The evidence is overwhelming.....They just don’t want to resolve it."
