The family of a former Jewish art collector is demanding the restitution of a Gustav Klimt masterpiece that it claims was acquired by Austria after World War II under extortion.

The family's lawyer Marc Weber told the Austria Press Agency (APA) last week that the heirs of Erich Lederer, the previous owner, had filed a restitution request with the Austrian culture ministry.
