Artworks Returned back to CR

A team of Czech art experts was given a budget of 10 million czk (370t €) and sent to an auction with the only purpose: to get pieces of art back, where they came from. Christie’s auction house in Amsterdam put under the hammer more than 400 items from the Liechtenstein family’s art collection.

The name of Lichtenstein is associated with Lichtenstein (Ledebursky) Palace, where the family lived for generations, and where also once the pieces hung at walls. Some 28 items were won by the Czech team, including a valuable series of tapestries, a set of chairs, and a painting by the Dutch artist Breugel. These artifacts are now set to be returned to their original homes.
