Summary The practice of art law includes advising and assisting clients on such varied issues as the recovery of stolen art; the import and export of art; artist, gallery, museum and foundation rights; sale and loan of collections; issues of authenticity; collectors' and artists' estates and due diligence for collectors and museums. The purpose of this book is to explore the legal, ethical and practical issues concerning the sharing, mobility and protection of art and cultural heritage within the scope of international art law. This is a field that combines a love of art, obsession, psychology, history, intrigue, criminal behaviour, law, spirituality, religion and the sacred, anthropology, archaeology, high-stakes money and the latest developments in science and technology
