The Lost Museum tells the story of the Jewish art collectors & gallery owners in France who were stripped of rare works by artists such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Degas, Cézanne & Picasso. Before they were through, the Nazis had taken more than 20,000 paintings, sculptures & drawings from France. The Lost Museum explores the Nazis’ systematic confiscation of these artworks, focusing on the private collections of five families: Rothschild, Rosenberg, Bernheim-Jeune, David-Weill & Schloss. The book is filled with private family photos of this art, some of which has never before been seen by the public, & it traces the fate of these works as they passed thru the hands of top German officials, unscrupulous art dealers & unwitting auction houses such as Christie’s & Sotheby’s.
