Poland still searches for around 63 000 art works lost during the II world was. The search is carried out by Polish diplomatic outposts such as Embassies and Polish Institutes, Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as well as Polish law enforcement agencies.
In recent years Poland has reclaimed tens of valuable artworks including the bust of the Goddess Diana by Antoine Hudone, the painting by Francesco Guardi Palace Stairs, the painting by Aleksander Gierymski Jewish Woman Selling Oranges, as well as the paintings by Julian Fałat, Anna Bilińśka-Bohdanowiczowa, and Józef Brandt.
