Featuring excellent reproductions and many detail views of 67 paintings and seven drawings believed until recently to have been destroyed during World War II, this catalogue showcases a remarkable array of art works that were removed from German private collections in the aftermath of the war and secretly stored in the Hermitage, including numerous pieces by Renoir, Cezanne, Monet, Degas, Pissarro, Van Gogh and Gauguin as well as compositions by Corot, Courbet, Manet, Seurat, Matisse and eleven other major French artists. Extensive individual commentaries on the works are prefaced by an essay profiling the German collections from which they were taken and discussing the historical and political issues surrounding the confiscation of the paintings and their long-undisclosed preservation in the Hermitage.
