Germany returns looted Guardi painting to Poland

BERLIN - An 18th-century painting looted by the Nazis for Adolf Hitler's 'Fuehrer Museum' was handed back to Poland on Monday, a move Germany hopes will revive thorny talks over a vast trove of historical documents Berlin that wants to recover from Poland.


The painting - "Palace Stairs" by Venetian artist Francesco Guardi - was taken from the National Museum in Warsaw in 1939, shortly after Germany invaded Poland. The small painting depicts noblemen talking at the grand stairs of Venice's Doge Palace. (AP)
