From AFP via ynetnews.com:
Cornelius Gurlitt, a German recluse who hid hundreds of paintings believed looted by the Nazis
in his Munich flat, says he will not give up the works without a fight, quashing hopes of a quick settlement.
Describing the priceless works as the love of his life, Gurlitt, 80,
told Der Spiegel news weekly in an interview that his father, a powerful
dealer, had acquired the paintings legally and that he as his heir sees himself as their rightful owner.
