Last-minute lawsuit filed by relative of Cornelius Gurlitt over Nazi-era art hoard

A relative of late German art collector Cornelius Gurlitt lodged a claim Friday for his inheritance, a Nazi-era art hoard which he has bequested to a Swiss museum, a spokesman said. The surprise move came just days before the Museum of Fine Arts in Bern is expected to reveal whether it accepts the inheritance of the spectacular trove of more than 1,000 pieces amassed during the Nazi era. Uta Werner, 86, a cousin, appealed to a court in Munich to be recognised as Gurlitt's heir, with the backing of her children and some other family members, the spokesman said in a statement. A report by a psychiatrist that "seriously questioned" Gurlitt's mental fitness to make a will had prompted the family to now act, it said. Gurlitt, who died in May aged 81, had hoarded more than 1,000 paintings, drawings and sketches, including masterpieces by the likes of Picasso and Chagall,

On 25th and 26th November 2014 Sotheby’s New York Latin American Art Modern and Contemporary Evening sale will be led by Fernando Botero’s La casa de las gemelas Arias, one of the most significant works by the artist to appear at auction in over a decade.

At its most recent meeting of the Board of Trustees, the National Gallery of Art's acquisitions focused on significant works on paper from the 18th through the 20th centuries, including a print of the first photograph to ever appear on the cover of Life magazine, made in 1936 by the trailblazing photographer Margaret Bourke-White (1904–1971).
