Hitler’s Hostage Art: Mary M. Lane In Conversation With Erin L. Thompson
Museum of Jewish Heritage
Mary M. Lane, former chief European art reporter at The Wall Street Journal and the author of Hitler’s Last Hostages, will discuss how Hitler’s obsession with art fueled his vision of a purified Nazi state, and the fate of the artwork that was hidden, stolen, or destroyed to ‘cleanse’ German culture. Lane, in conversation with Erin L. Thompson, America’s only full-time professor of art crime, will reveal the series of events leading up to 2013, when the German government confiscated roughly 1,300 works by Henri Matisse, George Grosz, Claude Monet, and other masters from the reclusive son of one of Hitler’s primary art dealers.
