This course is restricted to upper division students only.
We will discuss (1) international agreements for the protection of national cultural heritage, especially the UNESCO Convention; (2) national legislation for the protection of antiquities, e.g., in Mexico or in Turkey; (3) rules of bona fide purchase in the key art trading countries: England, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, the United States; (4) United States customs and stolen-property trade law; (5) conflict-of-laws aspects of the international art trade; (6) practical problems of museum administration, artists' rights, and the like; and finally (7) actual cases in these countries in recent years. I have participated in a number of these, and have a fairly extensive collection of records: briefs, testimony, customs, documentation, etc.
