A German museum returned a 15th century Renaissance painting stolen by the Nazis to the estate of a Jewish art dealer.

"Virgin and Child," attributed to an artist known as the Master of Flémalle, was handed over to the estate of the late Dr. Max Stern on Tuesday during a ceremony at the Canadian Embassy in Berlin.

The restoration of the painting marks the first time in the 10-year history of the Max Stern Art Restitution Project that a German museum has returned an artwork lost as a result of Nazi persecution. The painting is the 10th of about 400 missing works that has been recovered by the estate.
