In their quest for an absolute aesthetic, the Nazis declared war on what they deemed “degenerate art.” Between 1933 and 1935, hundreds of thousands of condemned works of modern art, including masterpieces by Picasso, Matisse and Renoir, were stolen from their owners, mostly Jewish collectors. This Raubknust (Nazi Robbery Art) is the subject of Claudio Poli’s riveting documentary, combining history, art and drama as it traces the stories behind the looting of several prominent collections and offering a rare glimpse of condemned works that have finally come to light. Narrated by Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty).
