When the Nazis entered Paris, they stole artwork and other valuables from Jewish collectors, art dealers and ordinary families. The Jeu de Paume Museum became the main depot for the looted artwork. A young French curator named Rose Valland witnessed this massive spoliation, and she surreptitiously kept meticulous notes. Thanks to her action, thousands of these paintings were recovered after the war. She became one of the most decorated women in France but died a forgotten hero.

Marianne Rosenberg (right) is the owner of Rosenberg & Co., a gallery on New York’s Upper East Side that continues her family’s distinguished tradition of exhibiting Modern and contemporary art. She is a granddaughter of Paul Rosenberg, the legendary Parisian art dealer who fled France in 1940 thanks to a visa from Aristides de Sousa Mendes and whose gallery and collection were the victims of Nazi art theft. Many of the artworks looted from the Rosenberg collection were taken to the Jeu de Paume museum where Rose Valland then surreptitiously kept track of them at great personal risk.
