Court rules Norton Simon Museum can keep Nazi-looted masterpieces

Hosted by

Another case of art taken by the Nazis from Jews during World War II has been working its way through the California courts. At stake are two of the Norton Simon Museum’s most prized masterpieces: 500-year-old German renaissance paintings of Adam and Eve. However, unlike in some other cases in recent years, a California district court judge has ruled the museum has a right to keep the art.
