An Austrian arbitration court ruled 17 January 2006 that five paintings by Klimt seized by the Nazis should be returned to their owner's family. The court ruled that "conditions have been met for the five paintings to be given back to the heirs to Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer." The paintings by the early 20th century, which are currently displayed at the Belvedere gallery in Vienna, have been since 1999 the subject of a legal battle between US citizen Maria Altmann, 89, Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer's niece, a United States citizen, and the Austrian state.
