Professor Brian Glassman attended “Art Crime and Cultural Heritage,” a symposium at NYU Law School, on June 5, 2015. Prof. Glassman participated in the Q & A session after the keynote presentation by Sgt. Harry Ettlinger (see photo), one of the last surviving “Monuments Men”—a group of art historians, curators, and conservators dedicated to protecting and preserving the art of Europe during World War II.
While at the symposium, Prof. Glassman spoke with art lawyer Howard Spiegler, a partner at Herrick Feinstein in New York City (see photo). In May, 2010, Mr. Spiegler participated in the panel presentation that Prof. Glassman organized and moderated, “Recovering Holocaust Art: Past, Present, and Future,” at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood, Ohio.
