The following report is the seventh in a series published by the Spoliation Advisory Panel. It considers a claim in respect of three Rubens paintings now in the possession of the Courtauld Institute of Art.
The Panel concluded that Franz Koenigs, a Dutch businessman and art collector, lost possession of three paintings by Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640), because of business/economic reasons and not because of the actions of the Nazis.
The Panel recommended, therefore, that the claim should be rejected.
