Description: Identification on verso (handwritten): A G.I. holding a Sch. of Leonardo da Vinci M. & C., taken – to Göring’s fury – from Monte Cassino. He rejected this painting and many others when they were presented to him by members of his air force. It was not proper to loot the holdings [of] an ally (Italy). Curious morality! T.C.H.
