Report of the Spoliation Advisory Panel in respect of three Rubens Paintings now in the possession of the Courtauld Institute of Art, London (HC 63)

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.
