The 81-year-old German art collector Cornelius Gurlitt, whose uncovered trove of early 20th-century works shocked the world last fall, died Tuesday in his Munich home.
A Nazi-looted Matisse painting reportedly will be returned to the heirs of a Paris art dealer by the German man who stashed it in his apartment for decades.
Gurlitt says he 'only wanted to live with my paintings.'
BERLIN — Cornelius Gurlitt said he is the legal owner of the 1,400 works of Nazi-looted art found in his Munich apartment and he will fight for them.
