A federal appeals court has sided with Yale University in a dispute over the ownership of a $200m Vincent van Gogh painting

The second US circuit court of appeals last week upheld a 2014 ruling by a lower court that dismissed the claims of Pierre Konowaloff. He says the Dutch painter’s The Night Cafe was stolen from his family during the Russian Revolution.
