This book tells the journey of the 202 "works of art of the greatest importance" from German public collections discovered by American Army in April 1945, placed in the care of the "Monuments Men" before being sent in Washington for safekeeping.
It is the first study to examine the entire journey of the "202" and its historical-political implications - from the Wiesbaden CCP to their sensational tour and return to a very different Germany at the onset of the Cold War. It includes a complete illustrated checklist of the "202", among which paintings by Botticelli, Jan van Eyck, Holbein, Giorgione or Snyders.
