Blog:  The Wolves at Your Door


In August of 2022, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul signed Senate Bill S117A into law, which requires museums to display prominent signage disclosing any objects on view that were looted, sold under duress, or confiscated by the Nazi regime in Europe. Fine Art Cataloger Natalie McGrath was relieved to verify that almost all the works in our collection did not fall into this category, but she also began to notice "close calls"—artworks that changed hands at an opportune moment and were spared from Nazi interference as a result, while the previous owners suffered in the months and years to follow.
