This seminar will explore and analyze the intersection of law with art and culture. Topics will include U.S. and international law as they relate to the illicit trade in antiquities, Nazi Era plunder and restitution, and other art crimes. We will also examine aspects of law pertaining to museums, artist's rights, art merchants, auction houses, and dealers, as well as issues regarding authenticity, title, and the statute of limitations. Additional subjects will include underwater cultural heritage and indigenous cultural concerns. Guest lecturers from the art and cultural property community will provide their unique perspectives. Course materials will include readings from Art, Cultural Heritage, and the Law, by Patty Gerstenblith (3rd ed. 2012).
