STAGE TUBE: Woman Sues OU to Reclaim Stolen Artwork by Nazis

A woman in Paris is suing the University of Oklahoma's Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art to try to retrieve a painting. The painting, "Shepherdess Bringing In Sheep," is an 1886 work by French impressionist artist Camille Pissarro. It was stolen from Raoul Meyer, a Jewish businessman in Paris, during the Nazi occupation of France.

Leone Meyer is suing OU to recover the painting, but OU officials are refusing to return the work. The painting was part of a collection of impressionist art over the decades.
