Capping today’s restitution news, word that a painting stolen in connection with World War II is being returned to Germany. The 15th-century “Flagellation of Christ” by an unknown artist of the Cologne School was taken from the Jagdschloss Grunewald outside Berlin by soldiers in the aftermath of the war. Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana ultimately acquired the painting. The agreement to return the work actually dates to 2004.
