Adolf Hitler presents a picture from a robbed museum to Hermann Goering

Adolf Hitler, Hermann Goering

Adolf Hitler presents to the head of the Luftwaffe Reichsmarshal Hermann Goering a painting by Hans Makart “Lady with a Falcon” (drawn in 1880) from a museum robbed by the Nazis.
Both Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering were passionate collectors of works of art: by 1945 Hitler’s collection numbered 6,755 paintings, and Goering’s collection – 1375. The pictures were acquired by illegal methods in countries occupied by Germany. Legal disputes over the legal status of some of the paintings from former collections of leaders of Nazi Germany are still going on.
