German police found more artwork in connection to a recently discovered cache of Nazi-seized art at a residence near Stuttgart Saturday.

Authorities collected 22 pieces of art from the apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt’s brother-in-law, according to the Wall Street Journal and German newspaper Bild. Last week, it was reported that police originally seized 1,400 works of art from Gurlitt that were confiscated by the Nazis from Jews and others persecuted by the Nazis during World War II and which Gurlitt’s father, a leading art dealer for the Nazis, had collected.

The collection includes works by Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse and Auguste Rodin.
