Long considered the gold standard in legal and tax guidance for visual art professionals and their attorneys, Art Law is now even more valuable to anyone involved in this complex, interconnected industry. Teeming with new information and analysis and many new sample documents, the three-volume Third Edition of Art Law is the one resource you must consult to help ensure you formalize rock-solid agreements, maximize tax savings, and minimize legal liabilities.
Stocked with more timesaving forms, checklists, charts, and procedural guides than ever before, ART LAW enables you to help art professionals:-
New and expanded information
Art Law now more fully examines the concept of entrustment in art deals -- auctioneer's responsibility to buyers -- antitrust and other forbidden auction practices -- online appraisals -- tort claims arising from art appraisals and art authentications -- fraud in online art transactions -- art as visual speech -- fine art licensing -- and art-related insight into the UNESCO Convention, Digital Millennium Copyright Act, National Stolen Property Act, Communications Decency Act, and EU Directives.
New and revised sample documents
Art Law now includes new forms covering consignments, dealer-to-dealer sales, and dealer-to collector sales -- updated forms from Sotheby's and Christie's -- new forms for tax-free exchanges -- and new forms for loans and promised gifts from artists' estates.
New case law commentary
Art Law now analyzes such key recent court decisions as Tiger Woods -- Ets-Hokin v. Skyy Spirits -- case law interpreting VARA, including what constitutes "recognized stature" -- court rulings affecting insurance coverage for artists by dealers -- and case law that centers on a museum's conflict between Holocaust-claimed art and its duty to maintain a collection acquired in good faith.
Distilling an immense body of law into three practical, transaction-enabling volumes, the new Third Edition of Art Law is required reading for anyone who buys, sells, collects, appraises, authenticates, exhibits, restores, invests, or advises in the visual art world.
