from the time of its removal to the time of its return [to its present location]
That's my read of this: from the time the artwork is taken from its present location until it is returned to that location. _Nagel_ would of course refer, really or --usually -- figuratively, to the support on which the artwork is hung or mounted.
The phrase is common in the context of insurance (and theft) of artworks, but I know of no equivalent phrse in English, and none is listed in my multilingual insurance dictionary.
