We search for works that are lost.  Do we search to reclaim the economic benefits of costly possessions, to reclaim the great pictorial narratives of western civilization, or do we try to complete the lives, the histories of those who lived and died under the Third Reich?  Will the recreation of the sensuality, the palpation of paint and painter, give us back the part of our own lost history that was lost?  Will we be more alive, more ourselves in our own still living bodies?
