The University of Oklahoma for more than a decade has exhibited a piece of Nazi-looted artwork bequeathed to it by the wife of an oil tycoon. But renewed claims by a family that owned the oil painting before World War II has drawn the US school into a fight it thought was settled in Switzerland more than 60 years ago.

The name Tes Pasola is synonymous with paper. She believes the possibility for paper has no limits. A zen-like artwork of pulp paper can assume a biomorphic or cloud shape. Book-bound paper can be made into a stool base. A rug and curtain can be made out of twine and Swarovski crystals. A BMW model, a labyrinth or avant-garde pants and blouse can be fashioned from handmade paper. The possibilities are endless.
