US judge rules Spanish museum can keep Nazi-looted painting

A federal judge in Los Angeles ruled Tuesday that a Spanish museum that acquired a Nazi-looted painting in 1992 is the work’s rightful owner. Although District Judge John F. Walter criticized Baron Hans-Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, the German industrialist for not doing all of the due diligence he could have when he acquired it in 1976, he found no evidence the museum knew it was looted.

Way to push sensationalism! NPR kind of buried the lead. The Jewish owners took compensation in the tens of thousands from the German government... in the FIFTIES! The court ruled that the museum made a reasonable effort to track ownership and could not have known the painting was stolen.

Isn't it good that the painting is in a museum instead of some personal collection?
