Jan van Huysum’s painting Vase of Flowers has been returned to Florence's Palazzo Pitti following a plea by Uffizi Galleries director Eike Schmidt.

 

The German Army stole the painting, along with several other still-life masterpieces from the 17th and 18th centuries, from the Villa Bossi-Pucci during their retreat in 1944.
