A newly discovered catalogue of stolen art, compiled for Adolf Hitler, could shed new light on the whereabouts of many lost masterpieces.

The leather-bound book includes lists and photographs of 78 paintings by prominent artists including the French masters Nicolas de Largillière, Antoine Watteau and Hyacinthe Rigaud, whose works sell for hundreds of thousands of pounds.

The fate of many of the works, which were stolen from France during the occupation, is still unknown.
