Balthasar van der Ast, ‘Flowers in a Wan-Li Vase’ from the former Collection of Paul Julius Hartog (1868-1942)

Looted by the Nazis in 1942, this van der Ast appeared for sale at TEFAF in 2009. After three years of negotiation, Christopher Marinello, acting on behalf of the Hartog heirs, reached a confidential settlement agreement with the lawyers for the possessor.
