What We Lost: Art Destroyed by the Axis Powers

(To read all our posts on A Week of Human Tragedy: The Firebombing of Dresden, please click here.)

This week and next, I want to share some of the paintings lost in the fires, looting and destruction of World War II. This post will show the Art destroyed by the Nazis.

First up, Courbet’s “The Stone Breakers”, stolen by the Nazis and destroyed by Allied bombings.

Next, The Destruction of Niobe’s Children by Richard Wilson, bombed in 1944 by the Germans.

Great idea.
