The article reports that actress Liz Taylor won a lawsuit allowing her to keep a painting by Vincent van Gogh that Nazis may have seized from a Jewish woman in 1939. Taylor bought the 1889 painting View of the Asylum and Chapel at Saint-Remy at a Sotheby's auction in London, England in 1963. Descendants of Margarete Mauthner sued Taylor in 2004, claiming the work had been sold under duress and should be returned to the family under the 1998 Holocaust Victims Redress Act.
