The #University of #Oklahoma will give back “La bergere rentrant des moutons” — or “Shepherdess bringing in sheep” — to #Holocaust survivor Leone Meyer, her New York lawyer Pierre Ciric told AFP about the restitution agreement signed Monday.

Meyer is the adoptive daughter of late businessman Raoul Meyer, who was co-owner of the French retail company that owns the upscale department store chain #Galeries #Lafayette.

He deposited his art collection in a vault at the bank Credit Commercial de France in 1940 before the Nazis seized it during their occupation of France.
