Pissarro’s Painting, Vandalized by the Nazis Was Returned to the Berlin Museum

Camille Pissarro’s painting, which was once vandalized by the Nazis, now finally returns to the Berlin museum. On Monday, Alte Nationalgalerie returned the work of art back and rebought it from the collection of a Jewish lawyer.

Representatives of Armand Dorville had a deal to return and repurchase Une Place a la Roche-Guyon. The president of SPK who also manages the Berlin museum is very happy and grateful that a part of the institution’s permanent collection is now back.

Berlin Museum Has Finally Returned Nazi-Vandalized Pissarro’s Painting

However, the information about how much money the museum paid for the art hasn’t been revealed yet. The only information is known that the family wanted the work of art to be on public display.

The art was painted in 1867 and purchased by the Dorville family in Paris in 1928. After the man moved to the south of France and died in 1941, his collection was spread to museums and private collectors.

Most members of the family were shot dead by the Nazis, who occupied the country in the period of 1940-1944. The Alte Nationalgalerie museum managed to buy the painting from a London gallery in 1961. At that time, the Nazis stole thousands of works during World War II and their return has been really a slow process.
