Monuments Man: The Walters' Marvin Chauncey Ross

You saw the movie Monuments Men, now come hear about Marvin Chauncey Ross, a “Monuments Man” who was the Walters’ first Curator of Medieval Art and Subsequent Decorative Arts! Michael Kurtz, former Assistant Archivist for Records Services at the National Archives, and author of America and the Return of Nazi Contraband: The Recovery of Europe’s Cultural Treasures will discuss the 345 men and women known as the “Monuments Men” –museum directors, curators, art historians, artists, architects, and educators – who tracked and located millions of European artworks and cultural treasures stolen by Hitler and the Nazis during WWII. Joining him is Melissa Wertheimer, Walters’ assistant archivist, who will share her fascinating discoveries while researching the Marvin Ross papers at the Walters.  Ross is credited with discovering Grünewald’s Isenheim Altarpiece at a château in France.
