Provenance Of Albertina’s Posters Is Investigated

A collection of 3,600 posters assembled by a Viennese businessman could become the focus of “one of the largest spoliation claims in Western Europe in over 50 years, in terms of the number of objects the museum could lose.” Vienna’s Albertina museum may have obtained the collection, which includes works by Mucha and Klimt, through a “forced sale” by the collector’s nephew as he fled the Nazis.
