René Gimpel was a French/Jewish art dealer living in Paris throughout both World Wars. With Nazi occupation imminent, Gimpel moved, concealed or smuggled many invaluable works of art before mass confiscation. He then joined the French Resistance with his sons and later died in Neuengamme concentration camp. Although he saved many works, many more were taken, sold and scattered. The story of René Gimpel continues, as works are sought throughout the world and restored to the Gimpel family.
