The Lost Museum dramatizes the pillage of the most extensive and valuable of these collections, which belonged to five renowned Jewish families: Rosenberg, Rothschild, Schloss, David-Weill and Bernheim-Jeune. After the war, many works that were found were returned to their owners. But a large number had disappeared, been destroyed or spirited out of Europe into the underground art market. Drawing on recently declassified government archives and information provided exclusively to him by the heirs of these great collections, Feliciano traces the fate ofthe artworks as they passed from the hands of top German officials to unscrupulousFrench and Swiss collaborators and dealers, then on to prestigious U. S. And European auction houses. Two thousand of these stolen artworks have been identified by Feliciano in the Louvre and other French national museums, fomenting a scandal that has received front-page coverage throughout Europe and spurred a series of new claims and suits by heirs. In this updated and enlarged American edition, he reveals the location of stolen works hanging in major U. S. Museums as well. Illustrated with more than 70 photographs, most depicting paintings that have vanished forever, The Lost Museum is the thrilling story of one man's persistent investigation of a 50-year-old mystery and revelation of a shameful international conspiracy. -- with a bonus offer ., Basic Books, 1998
