Photo provided by the Augsburg, southern Germany, prosecution Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013 shows the painting by French artist Henry Matisse 'Sitzende Frau' ('Sitting Woman') that was among the more than 1400 art works that were seized by German authorities in an apartment in Munich in February 2012. Investigators, aided by a leading art historian, are trying to establish the artworks' legal status and history. It's unclear how many of the works might be subject to return to pre-World War II owners.
