BERLIN — The extraordinary disclosure last week that a trove of more than 1,400 vanished artworks were found in a Munich apartment has raised more questions than it has answered.
What were these works, which were produced by masters such as Chagall, Matisse and Picasso?
Who are their rightful owners?
And where is Cornelius Gurlitt, the son of a Holocaust-era art dealer in whose apartment they were found?
Responding to growing international pressure, German authorities have begun to offer some preliminary answers.
