Paintings often hold value to collectors, but they can also have a large emotional significance for those who once owned the piece. Recently, the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University reunited an individual with a painting that went missing more than 60 years ago.

A piece by German artist, Hans Baldung Grien, was given to the Guttmann family during the World War II. It was intended to be handed off to Adolf Hitler as a token to freedom, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger. The painting was meant to give Friedrich and Louise Gutmann permission to return safely to Italy upon being received by Hitler. However, the SS police eventually confiscated the work, leaving the Gutmanns to die in concentration camps.

After it was taken by the SS police, the painting disappeared. The Zimmerli Art Museum received the work in 1959 where it has been on display ever since. Simon Goodman, the grandson of the Guttmanns, recently received the piece from the museum after it had been separated from the family for nearly 70 years.

"It was really touching, to have this painting given back to them," Zimmerli director, Suzanne Delehanty, told the news source.

Employment of artists is projected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
