Art stolen by Nazis found in Munich

A collection of 1,500 artworks confiscated by the Nazis in the 1930s and 1940s has been found in the German city of Munich.

The trove is believed to include works by Matisse, Picasso and Chagall.

Art historian Godfrey Barker told the BBC that this is "possibly the biggest story of art recovered from World War II since the Austrians unveiled 10,000 pictures three years ago".
