This seminar will explore and analyze the intersection of law with art and culture. Topics will include U.S. and international law and policy regarding the illicit trade in antiquities, Nazi-era looting, colonial-era acquisitions, and restitution. We also will 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. Materials will be provided regarding underwater cultural heritage and NAGPRA. Guests from the art and cultural property community will provide their unique perspectives.
