Whose art is it anyway?

About This Webinar

Thursday 3 February 2022, 09:30 - 10:15 BST

Museums, galleries and other cultural institutions can find themselves in the situation where they have objects of great value (culturally and/or financially) but where there is a dispute as to the ownership of that object.

In this webinar, we looked at:

  • The often tricky legal issues that arise

  • How those disputes can be resolved

Andrew Wilkinson, our head of charities and contentious probate, was joined by Luke Harris, barrister at Five Stone Buildings. Luke has acted in a variety of arts and cultural property disputes, including disputes in relation to paintings by Matisse, Winslow Homer and Monet.
