United States 'Monuments Men' group returns historic paintings taken after World War II

The family of an American tank commander who won three historic paintings playing poker during World War II returned the stolen art treasures on Tuesday to their rightful owners. Two more paintings acquired by a librarian while serving for the US army in Germany in late 1945 were also handed over during a ceremony at the State Department in Washington after the families had contacted a US foundation that tracks down missing artwork. "These paintings are just the tip of the iceberg of the hundreds of thousands of paintings and other cultural items still missing since World War II," said Robert Edsel, the founder and chairman of the Monuments Men Foundation. The foundation is named after a US task force of museum directors, curators and educators who protected cultural treasures from the destruction of World War II, an achievement memorialized in the 2014 George Clooney movie "The Monuments Men." Major William Oftebro of the 750th tank battalion obtained the three paintings while he was

Turkey investigates botched restoration at archeology museum in the southern province of Hatay

Turkish authorities on Tuesday launched an investigation after a number of ancient Roman mosaics were badly damaged during a botched restoration attempt at a museum in southern Turkey. The inquiry comes after reports that at least 10 priceless mosaics at the Archaeology Museum in the southern province of Hatay had been damaged while being restored and moved to a new building. "An investigation has been launched on this work and the restoration on the site has been suspended," an official told AFP on condition of anonymity. Turkish newspapers published before and after pictures of the mosaics that showed the touched-up results looking significantly different than the originals, provoking popular uproar and amusement. Some stones appeared to have gone missing or been misplaced, changing the facial expressions of the figures depicted. "A

Russia's Tretyakov gallery targeted by investigators in paintings scam probe

Russian investigators are carrying out a probe into art valuations by experts at one of the country's top museums, Moscow's Tretyakov Gallery, a gallery spokeswoman said Wednesday. "The investigation is continuing outside the gallery's premises," spokeswoman Anna Kotlyar told AFP. She confirmed that investigators had carried out searches in the gallery on Tuesday, but said she had "minimal information" and could not comment further. In one of the most high-profile scandals to hit Russia's art world in recent years, the powerful Investigative Committee has launched a probe into paintings allegedly smuggled out of the country after experts from the Tretyakov Gallery assessed them at a fraction of their true price. In a statement, investigators said they had arrested a 33-year-old local government official at Moscow's Vnukovo airport as he tried to take five paintings out of the country, declaring their total value as less than 180,000 rubles

Virgilio Garza, Head of Latin American Art, commented: “Vampiros vegetarianos is a wonderful work and serves as an incredible anchor to our sale which features an important selection of works by several leading women surrealists artists, including Leonora Carrington, Alice Rahon

'Godfather' director Francis Ford Coppola wins Princess of Asturias award

US filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola on Wednesday won Spain's top arts prize, the Princess of Asturias award, for a career making classics such as "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now". The prize jury of Spanish grandees hailed Coppola, 76, as a "visionary and innovator" in its citation for the 50,000 euro ($56,000) prize. "His explorations of power and the horror and absurdity of war have transcended his artistic work and become universal icons of imagination and contemporary culture." Masterpieces such as the "Godfather" mafia saga and Vietnam epic "Apocalypse Now" have earned Coppola multiple Oscars and a reputation as an uncompromising artist. "His attitude has clashed on occasion with the interests of the Hollywood industry, causing him economic problems and difficult shoots," the prize jury said. The Princess of Asturias Foundation hands its arts prize each year for a "contribution to the
