What are the latest rules governing Nazi-confiscated art? Additionally, you’ll be updated on issues dealing with stolen art; export or import of art; fakes, frauds, and forgeries; gifting and tax benefits; art project contracts; reproduction rights; contractual concerns when buying, selling or trading art; and obtaining appropriate professional advice on authentication, public or private commissions of art, value, copyright and insurance concerns.
