Norwegian museum agrees to return looted Matisse

"Woman in Blue in Front of a Fireplace," circa 1937 by Henry Matisse, will be returned by a Norwegian museum to the family of Jewish art dealer Paul Rosenberg. The museum said in a statement Thursday that although it acquired the painting in good faith, it has "chosen to adhere to international conventions and return the painting to Rosenberg's heirs."
