Three paintings found in a private home in Milan are linked to art crime perpetuated by the Nazi’s during WWII. The paintings in question include TRINITY by Alessio Baldovinetti and CIRCUMCISION OF JESUS AT TEMPLE by Girolamo dia Libri .
The pieces were originally part of a collection of the House of Bourbon-Parma where Prince Felix of Luxembourg resided. 40 pieces from this collection are still missing.
The pieces are sought to be returned to Luxembourg from Milan’s Pinacotela di Brera Art Museum as t he paintings are now the property of Luxembourg – the source country.
The pieces are part of a huge illegal art crime trade – still ongoing today from WWII. An investigation has been launched by the Italian Art Crime unit to determine how these paintings were acquired.
