A German recluse who kept a secret trove of art that authorities say includes works stolen by the Nazis, said Sunday that he “loved” the works and won’t hand them over "voluntarily." In an interview with German news magazine Der Spiegel, 80-year-old Cornelius Gurlitt was quoted saying he had legally inherited the collection from his father.
