Art and Law

Edited by: Bernard Tilleman, Alain Verbeke, Bert Demarsin, Eltjo Schrage

The scholarly essays in this book arise from a course of lectures and seminars given at the Catholic University of Louvain by a group of leading Belgian and Dutch art law experts. Ranging widely across a diverse terrain, these essays provide a unique resource and perspective on problems old and new confronting those interested in the relationship between art and law. Unusual for a work of legal scholarship, the book is attractively illustrated, thus lending greater force to the essays which are both analytical and exploratory. The topics covered extend from preservation of archaeological heritage across droit de suite, artistic freedom, erotic art, art in time of war, the moral rights of artists, and much more. It provides a uniquely provoking and subtle investigation of this area of law.
