Chana rue d'Assas avec son fils

"The child Didi", story of a looted work of art by Chana Orloff, 1921-2023

From 19 November 2023 to 29 September 2024

On January 26, 2023, the sculpture of "L'enfant Didi", Chana Orloff's son, returned to the artist's studio after an absence of almost 80 years. Stolen on March 4, 1943 - along with the entire contents of the studio-dwelling and one hundred and forty other sculptures - the work was then passed from hand to hand until its reappearance in New York in 2008 and its return to the family in 2022.
