German officials looking into a huge collection of valuable art found in Munich , are planning to return  some works to Cornelius Gurlitt – when they are confirmed as belonging to him – and not to have been stolen by the Nazis.

A  newly established government task force will identify the owners of the more than 1,400 works as soon as possible and return to Gurlitt  those pieces that  are confirmed as belonging to him.

Authorities found the paintings and art works in Gurlitt’s apartment in February 2012 while they were investigating a tax case but  the discovery only became public through media reports last month.

The German government says almost 600  pieces in the treasure trove of art – may have been looted by the Nazis.
