Some 60 works of art including pictures by Monet, Picasso and Renoir, belonging to Cornelius Gurlitt, the elderly son of a Nazi-era art dealer, have been removed from his home in Salzburg, Austria, to ensure their safety, his spokesman said Tuesday. News last year that the German authorities had discovered a trove of some 1,280 artworks in Mr. Gurlitt’s Munich apartment prompted a global outcry. Julian Radcliffe, chairman of the Art Loss Register, says that the works are only a "tiny fraction" of art illegally acquired during the Holocaust: Art experts, Jewish groups, and others demanded that Germany work harder to return works stolen or wrongfully taken by the Nazis.
