The Cleveland Museum of Art has acquired a rare German expressionist painting from an artist later condemned by the Nazis.

The painting by Heinrich Davringhausen was acquired in a Munich auction earlier this month and had a price-tag of more than $300,000. The 1914 painting shows a violent scene of World War I with burning buildings and people running for their lives.
