Abstract

This presentation will explore the idea of “art as cultural property” by examining pertinent issues in the growing field of art law. Issues regarding the repatriation of art to its country of origin, art consignment fraud, and the ethics of artifact sales as they pertain to private and public collections of art will be further untangled. Sources such as scholarly articles as well as law cases will be consulted in this inquiry into the intersection of art and law. As cultural icons, artworks that have been repatriated will be considered through the lens of power, nationalism, and cultural symbol.
