Overview

What happens when the art world encounters the law and vice versa? This book describes these collisions with a critical eye through a combination of primary source materials, excerpts from professional and art journals, and extensive textual notes. Topics analysed include the fate of works of art in wartime, the international trade in stolen and illegally exported cultural property, artistic freedom, censorship and state support for art and artists, copyright, droit moral and droit de suite, the artist's professional life and death, collectors in the art market, income and estate taxation, charitable donations and works of art, and art museums and their collections.

Law, Ethics, and the Visual Arts is unique in its description of the origins and development of major areas of art and practice; its analysis of international problems, applicable public and private international law, and different national approaches to similar problems; and its critical evaluation of the implications of laws, legal decisions, and art world practices. The authors are recognised experts in the field who have defined the canon in many aspects of art law.

Art world professionals, including practising and academic lawyers, trusts and estate lawyers and others dealing with art as an asset, those in the art trade, art administrators, the museum trustees and staff, art historians, archaeologists, and art collectors will appreciate the unmatched features of Law, Ethics, and the Visual Arts and find it of great value in their work.
