Lectures and Courses at MFA Boston Explore Rothschild Gift and Nazi-era Provenance

Two upcoming events at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), allow visitors to get an inside look at Nazi-era provenance research at the MFA, and the recent gift of the heirs of Bettina Looram de Rothschild-on view in the exhibition Restoring a Legacy: Rothschild Family Treasures through June 21.

  • Lost and Found: Research on Nazi-Era Looting and Restitution at the Museum of Fine Arts (April 9, $20): The MFA's Curator for Provenance explains the Museum's research on Nazi-era provenance, or ownership history, of its encyclopedic collection-including the recent gift of objects from the Rothschild heirs. Learn more about restitution during the Holocaust with the film Stealing Klimt, following the lecture.
  • Restoring a Legacy: Rothschild Family Treasures (June 18, $65): The MFA's European Decorative Arts and Sculpture Curator and Curator for Provenance tell the behind-the scenes stories of the Rothschild collection as it was taken by the Nazis during WWII, and then its return and safe-keeping at the MFA.
