Owner: Consorts Schloss — Paris, France
Collection: (Schloss) Adolphe Schloss-The Schloss collection was assembled with great care by Adolphe Schloss, a German Jew who settled in Paris in the late 19th century. In August 1939, the collection was transferred to a vault at the Chateau de Chambon (Corrèze) for safekeeping. On April 16, 1943, a combination of Nazi policemen and French officials from the CGQJ worked together to confiscate the Schloss collection and transfer it to Paris for processing. There, the collection was split into three parts--the largest going to the Linz Museum project. That part of the collection (262 paintings) was transferred to the Führerbau (Munich) on 24 November 1943 where it remained untouched until 29-30 April 1945 when local Munich citizens broke into the building housing the collection and hundreds of other works and stole everything. Nearly half of the Schloss paintings are still unrestituted.
