Beschreibung

Brilliant condition for this uncommon account of the looting of Europes art treasures during the Second World War. It charts the theft and subsequent indifference of governments and the international art trade. A fascinating and informative read, with walk on parts of infamous and famous. Hitler and Goring, of course, are prominent. This gorgeous copy looks unread, and the jacket is protected and unclipped. The binding is perfect, and the gilt titling brilliant. No damaged corners, not ex library, not remaindered. This is close to being as new. Wonderful illustrations, copious notes.

Book by Peter Harclerode Brendan Pittaway

Reseña del editor:

Fired by his ambition to establish the world's finest museums and galleries in his former home town in Austria, Adolf Hitler systematically looted Europe's treasurehouses to accumulate a magnificent hoard of important and priceless art collections. Much loot was recovered at the war's end, but vast quantities disappeared once again with the arrival in Germany of Josef Stalin's Red Army, which indulged in wholesale pillage while the other Allies picked over the ruins of the Third Reich for their own enrichment.


The Lost Masters is a dramatic and tragic account of the looting of Europe and the attempts by those who lost so much to reclaim their heritage in the face of indifference from governments and the international art trade. It tells of an art world which has continued to make huge profits from looted works of art, while frustrating attempts by the rightful owners to seek restitution.
