During his abbreviated lifetime, a cabaret performer named Fritz Grünbaum amassed a trove of artwork — more than 400 pieces, including 80 sketches and paintings by the Austrian expressionist Egon Schiele that were ultimately plundered by the Nazis.

The seven Schiele pieces, valued collectively at $9.5 million, were handed over to the family during a ceremony at the Manhattan District Attorney's office, which has taken a leading role in tracking down stolen art and antiquities.
Former Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard pleaded not guilty Thursday to all charges against him in his Toronto sexual assault case, as jury selection for his trial got underway.

Nygard is facing five counts of sexual assault and one count of forcible confinement, reduced from 11 total charges after a court heard last week that three of the eight original complainants in the case are not expected to testify.
