the general director of the Bavarian State Painting Collections from 1953 to 1957 was the same man who served in the position before 1945: Ernst Buchner. US historian Petropoulos describes him as "part of Hitler's kleptocracy." (English)

Doch statt Nachforschungen zu den Vorbesitzern anzustellen, gliederten die Bayerischen Staatsgemäldesammlungen die besten Werke in ihre Museen ein. Und verkauften gemeinsam mit den zuständigen bayerischen Ministerien den Rest - auch direkt an die Familien ehemaliger NS-Größen. Diese skandalösen Vorgänge hat die Londoner "Commission for Looted Art in Europe" aufgedeckt, eine NGO, die sich für die Rechte der Opfer verwendet. (German)

Among the high ranking Nazi families negotiating to get back looted art were the Goering, Hoffmann, Bormann, von Schirach, Frank, and Streicher families, who often negotiated directly with the director of the Bavarian State Museums and ministers in the Bavarian government.In addition, a joint probe with the Munich-based newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, published this past Sunday (and translated by the CLAE here), indicates that many state-run Bavarian institutions have been sitting on Nazi-looted art since as early as 1949, when artworks had been returned to Germany (English)
