From Murder to Museums: Abraham Lincoln, Adolf Hitler, and the Hunt for Nazi Looted Art in America

Raymond J. Dowd, Partner at the New York City law firm Dunnington, Bartholow & Miller, LLP will recount how his firm seized two stolen Schieles after they were spotted at the Salon+Art Show at the Park Avenue Armory in November 2015, leading to international headlines upon their restitution to their clients. The Schieles are now at Christie’s with an appellate court blocking the sale. The presentation traces Abraham Lincoln’s idea of taking the profit out of war to show that returning the stolen property to Holocaust victims was an American idea.
