Barbara R. Cochran, MFA  See profile asked this question:

Language pair:

French > English

Subject:

Law / Certificates

Level of diffculty:

Easy / medium

Word or term in question:

prévue comme par une sentence

Context:

Des tableaux modernes, environ cinq ou six cents, brûlaient au cœur même de Paris. Tous avaient été désignés par l’Einsatzstab Rosenberg comme « inemployables » et dangereux. En eux se trouvait un poison à détruire : l’inspiration enjuivée dénoncée par le Führer. Le choix était somptueux et le bûcher nazi richement alimenté.
Des peintures de Masson, Miró, Picabia, Valadon, Klee, Max Ernst, Léger, Picasso, Kisling, La Fresnaye, Marval, Mané-Katz, devenaient la proie des flammes et beaucoup d’autres œuvres de qualité par- tageaient leur sort.
Un camion militaire les avait amenées du séquestre du Louvre au jardin du Jeu de Paume où devait être exécutée la destruction, prévue comme par une sentence quelques jours auparavant.

I am assuming that it means something like "as if a judgment/death sentence had been handed down against them". But I was wondering it there is a more standard/appropriate/better way of expressing this. Thanks.

My comment:

actually I thought of "beacon" but that's perhaps too positive?
