An Australian gallery will return a portrait once thought the work of Vincent Van Gogh to its rightful owners in what is believed to be the country's first restitution of art lost under the Nazis.In deciding the claim, the gallery said it looked to decisions by the Dutch Restitutions Committee which adjudicates claims about Nazi-confiscated art.When the Melbourne gallery purchased the painting in 1940, it had already changed hands several times since the auction and was considered to be by Van Gogh.The gallery is awaiting a response from the heirs, who are understood to be living in South Africa.
