New exhibition from 24 October 2014 until 1 February 2015

The labyrinth of legitimate loot, the illegitimate looting of art during the last wars, or the traces of state-sponsored of individual theft – high-calibre masterpieces in today´s Staatliches Museum Schwerin conceal unseen secrets.

In 1807 more than 200 masterpieces were confiscated, and transported from Schwerin to Paris following Napoleon’s aim to establish a central museum of Europe representing the power, political strength, and military predominance of the Emperor Napoleon. During World War II, the Nazi Party organized art looting on a hitherto unsighted, and unknown scale. Some of the stolen pieces found their way back, and can be seen in the exhibition ART LOOTING | LOOTED ART in the Gallery of Old & New Masters.
