Last week, the story was that SMU’s Meadows Museum now had three paintings that had once been stolen by the Nazis — although buried deep in the story was the fact that both Meadows officials and Robert Edsel, author of The Monuments Men, felt that the museum’s rightful ownership of the paintings would eventually be validated. This morning, Michael Kimmelman in the NYTimes reports from Berlin that the former Dallas oilman returned the 13th Linz album to the German Historical Museum there. It was one of 31 photo albums compiled of the artworks that were destined for the Fuhrermuseum to be built in his hometown of Linz, Austria. Eleven are still missing; this one had been kept by a Cleveland vet who’d been with Patton’s army when he picked it up while rummaging in the Berghof, Hitler’s Alpine retreat.
