Expedition launched to find $800 million of Nazi stolen art

A search is underway to find a treasure trove of artworks stolen and hidden away by the Nazis during WWII.

Monets, Manets, Cezannes and masterpieces by other artists, along with sculptures, carpets and tapestries, are believed to be buried in an old silver mine near the Czech-German border, 90 minutes’ drive from the city of Dresden.

The paintings formed the bulk of the Hatvany collection, the property of Baron Ferenc Hatvany, who was a leading Hungarian-Jewish industrialist and art patron.

  1. Industrialist and art patron, or industrialist and patron of the arts? Was he a patron, or merely a collector? Also, what happened to the Baron?
