German art hoard held unknown Chagall, Matisse

AUGSBURG, Germany (AP) — A hoard of more than 1,400 works of art found at a Munich apartment by German investigators following a routine customs check offers a treasure trove for art historians including previously unknown works by masters such as Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse. Officials now faced a daunting challenge: to identify the art, determine its legal situation and find the rightful owners of the works, many of which may have been seized by the Nazi regime.

Nazi's considered these artists to be "degenerate". Interesting that they condemned and seized the artworks, but didn't destroy them. Many went to Goering's personal collection
