Bridging the law and the visual arts.

Art Law Journals

  • Art Antiquity and Law (U.K.) A quarterly, which starting in 1996, was designed for all who value the cultural and historical environment. “The principal aim of the Quarterly is to inform. It exists to tell those who work in art and antiquity about the law governing their activities and the policies behind the law. It is founded on the belief, never more confident than today, that cultural life cannot in a legal vacuum. In our conviction, all responsible members of the art and history community should be aware of the role which law plays in shaping cultural policy. To understand law, however demanding the task, is to meet its challenges more effectively.”
