Join V & A Provenance Curator Dr Jacques Schuhmacher as he uncovers the story of Nazi looting in the Gilbert Collection. As the children of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, Rosaline and Arthur Gilbert were acutely aware of Nazi crimes. But, like so many other collectors of the time, they did not ask in-depth questions about the provenance – or history of ownership – of the masterpieces they added to their world class collections. Did they unwittingly acquire objects the Nazis had confiscated or extorted from their Jewish victims?
