Kokoschka and Cologne: City Council Votes in Favour of Restitution

A follow-up on my earlier post on the claim the heirs of art dealer Alfred Flechtheim to return Oskar Kokoschka’s portrait of Tilla Durieux and the recommendation of the Limbach Commission to return the painting: On April 30, 2013, the Cologne City Council has voted to follow the recommendation. At the same time, the City of Cologne will discuss with the heirs whether there are options to keep “Tilla Durieux” in Cologne, including a possible acquisition.
