Whose art is it anyway?

About This Webinar

Wednesday 10 November 2021, 09:00 - 09:45 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 will talk through:

The often tricky legal issues that arise

How those disputes can be resolved

Andrew Wilkinson, our head of charities and contentious probate, will be 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.
