Di Giuseppe v. Musée du Louvre
Di Giuseppe v. Musée du Louvre, Cour d’appel [CA] Paris, 1e ch., June 2, 1999 (Fr.).
The heirs of Jewish art collector Gentili di Guiseppe, sued the Louvre for five paintings that had been in di Giuseppe’s art collection, but were auctioned off by France’s Vichy regime in 1941. A French Court ruled the auction null and void and ordered the Louvre to return the paintings to di Giuseppe’s heirs.
