Degas' Dust | Biography: Historical, Political & Military

Carnie Matisonn


Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks in post-war Johannesburg, Carnie Matisonn learns of a great-uncle in occupied Norway murdered by Nazi soldiers as they looted his prized art collection.

He starts a lifelong quest to retrieve the art that takes him into the murky waters of apartheid sanctions-busting, Mossad agents, international art dealers and Nazi hunters.

Matisonn's enthralling story – told here with journalist Charles Cilliers – embraces courage, wit and wisdom as he shows one man can achieve the impossible.
