More Nazi-looted art at auction
Not a record, but a very healthy price nonetheless:
A painting by Austrian expressionist Egon Schiele, missing for more than 60 years after it was stolen by the Nazis in 1938, has fetched £11.7m at auction.From the BBC.
The painting surfaced last year when an anonymous collector asked Christie's for a valuation.
It was returned to the family of its original owner, who sold it on Tuesday.
