A Swiss museum is preparing to announce whether it has decided to accept a priceless collection of long-hidden art bequeathed to it by German collector Cornelius Gurlitt.

Bavarian authorities in 2012 seized 1,280 items from Gurlitt's apartment in Munich while investigating a tax case. Gurlitt later reached a deal with the German government to check whether any of the works were looted from Jewish owners by the Nazis. Authorities say that deal is binding on any heirs.
