Polenovs Painting Lost in World War II Returned from Germany to Russia

Painting “Pond with Willows” by the famous Russian artist Vasily Polenov is back to Taganrog.

      The painting was stolen from Taganrog during the occupation of the Russian city by fascist Germany in 1943. It was lost track of until 1986, when the city of Kiel purchased it from a private collector. The painting was bought at 40 thousand DM for the municipal exhibition hall.

      The Museum of Fine Arts in Kiel has returned the painting to Russia. This is the first artwork returned by Germany to Taganrog after the Great Patriotic War.
