Portrait of a Young Man by Polish painter Krzysztof Lubieniecki, 1728 (Photo: FBI)
From Washington Post’s Elahe Izadi:
Polish baroque painter Krzysztof Lubieniecki finished “Portrait of a Young Man” sometime around 1728, and the work of art eventually made its way to Poland’s National Museum in Warsaw.
Then, like thousands of other European artworks, the painting fell into Nazi hands during World War II. For many years the Lubieniecki painting existed only on lists documenting looted art, accompanied by a black-and-white photo to prove its existence.
Now, decades after its theft, “Portrait of a Young Man” is back with Polish officials, the FBI announced Monday.
