(Franz Marc) Fox (Holocaust)

Thinking about Laura Levitt’s The Objects That Remain after seeing this news article here about the return of this lost property.

It’s an amazing painting by German expressionist artist Franz Marc. The legal details are a little complicated and of interest in their own right. I’m posting here because I just really like the gentle painting, which I’ve never seen before, and the artist, the great painter of animal life.

The item need not be spectacular, Markus Stoetzel, a Germany-based attorney for the heirs, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. “It is not always a Franz Marc painting,” he said in a telephone interview. “It can be a book or a piece of furniture that has a connection to the past, to what they lost.”
