Nazi-Confiscated Art Trove Recovered in Munich Last year, German authorities were investigating Cornelius Gurlitt for tax evasion. They found evidence that led to a raid on his Munich apartment, where they made an extraordinary discovery: 1400 paintings believed to have been confiscated by Nazis from Jews.
