"Restitution Roulette: A Comparison of U.S. and European Approaches

  • 14 Oct 2015
  • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • DePaul University College of Law- Center for Art, Museum & Cultural Heritage Law, Room 905 (Lewis Center)

Join us for a special lecture on comparative approaches to restitution claims by Thomas R. Kline, Of Counsel, Andrews Kurth LLP, as part of the Arts Law Colloquium Series. 

In the U.S., the film Woman in Gold and the discovery of the Gurlitt trove of well over a thousand works of art in Munich captured the imagination of the public as nothing has done in recent memory concerning restitution of Nazi-era looted art. This increased curiosity and desire to understand the complexities of Nazi-era looting and post-war restitution comes at a time when restitution claims have become more complex and difficult to resolve.

Mr. Kline will compare the different circumstances and laws that govern restitution in the U.S. and Europe and will examine how approaches to such claims on both sides of the Atlantic have led to uncertainty and unpredictable outcomes.

Light refreshments will be provided. There is no charge to attend, but if you wish to attend, you must register in advance.

If you have any questions, please email us at CAMCHL@depaul.edu.
