Czech National Gallery to return monastic artwork

From Prague Post.

Several extremely valuable and important paintings that have been living in the Czech National Gallery will be returned to their monastic owners according to restitution law. However, they won’t be going anywhere for at least ten years – they will be staying put under a free loan agreement.

The loan agreement will allow for some much needed restoration. The article above also mentions the return of real estate seized by the Communist regime decades ago.
