One observes differences in the dimensions and creation dates in the information provided by the MoMa and by the "Degenerate Art" Research Center, FU Berlin for the Matisse painting. However the MoMa's records show that the painting was clearly identified as the looted work EK no. 3688: Stillleben, blaues Zimmer.
