'Nazi-looted' posters to be auctioned

A rare collection of turn-of-the-century posters by some of the biggest names in art are to go under the hammer in New York.

The collection was amassed by a Jewish dentist from Germany but was seized by Nazi soldiers in 1938. Around a third of the posters - some 4,300 - have survived, and include works by Gustav Klimt, Edvard Munch and Toulouse Lautrec.

The lot is valued at almost $6m (£3.7m), with some estimates suggesting it could reach double that amount at auction.
