Provenance research has become a hot topic for museums, collectors, dealers and others who are keen to identify works that were looted by the Nazis. But definite answers can be elusive after the passage of so much time.

Charron for a deep dive into the subject. The discussion was moderated by David D’Arcy of The Art Newspaper.
