Public attention focused on illegal art trade -- theft, counterfeiting and pillage -- has obscured the broader question of the legal art trade in international culture and civilisation. This fifth volume in the International Sales of Works of Art series first explores the principles which should govern the legal trade of cultural objects. World-renowned experts -- anthropologist, archeologist, ethnologist, museum director, governmental and international organisations, merchant, collector, lawyer -- gather within these pages to exchange ideas on this complex and contentious subject. Recovering works of art after armed conflict raises serious legal, practical, ethical and political issues which form the second part of this book. How to measure the value of the Cazenoves frescoes in Rousillon without considering their context? The innovative third section considers the problems of protecting immovable cultural property. Practical issues are not forgotten: Conservation requires the expertise of at least 12 different professions; transportation and insurance can raise strange and difficult problems; and financing is a perennial question, from excavation to exhibition. Over ten years, this series has become the indispensible reference for professionals in every sector of the international art market. A unique resource for scholars and practitioners all over the world.
