National Breifing Rockies: Utah: Painting to be Returned

The New York Times 27 February 2004

An 18th-century oil painting recently discovered to have been stolen by the Nazis and later donated to the Utah Museum of Fine Arts will be returned to its owners. The painting, ''Les Amoureux Jeunes'' by François Boucher, was stolen in 1940 from a French art dealer, Andrew Jean Seligmann. Two of his heirs will claim the painting next month.

About 18 months ago, Nancy Yeide, a researcher at the National Gallery of Art in Washington discovered that the painting had been stolen while working on a book about the art collection of Hermann Göring, said David Carroll, director of collections for the Utah museum.
