St. Mary of Egypt by Emil Nolde
Emil Nolde's work has become the focus of renewed attention after a painting entitled Blumengarten from 1917, which now hangs in the art museum Moderna Museet, Stockholm , Sweden and has been valued at US$4,000,000, was discovered to have been looted from Otto Nathan Deutsch, a German-Jewish refugee whose heirs, including a Holocaust survivor, are asking for its return.
Some were included in the Degenerate Art exhibition of 1937, despite his protests, including a personal appeal to Nazi gauleiter Baldur von Schirach in Vienna.
