Art on the Move: A Breakfast Seminar

29/10/2019 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

PAUL THEODOR VAN BRUSSEL (DUTCH 1754-1795) | STILL LIFE | £40,000-60,000 + fees

As a result of art fairs, auction sales, gallery sales, exhibition loans, business and domestic relocation, art collections on yachts & planes, etc. literally thousands of art objects are likely to be on the move on a daily basis. The movement of art across borders will likely give rise to both regulatory or tax considerations. Failure to comply with these may give rise not only to fines or criminal charges, but may also result in the impounding or even destruction of the object involved.

AMANDA GRAY (Partner, Mishcon de Reya LLP) will speak on exporting art from the UK with NIC ARNOLD (Partner, PwC) looking at the import issues. PANDORA MATHER-LEES (Pandora Art Services) will speak about the regulatory risks facing superyacht owners as they voyage through different jurisdictions.

The seminar will last around an hour and be followed by a short introduction to and a chance to view Lyon & Turnbull’s auction, The Classic Tradition. The sale takes place on 30 October.



Tuesday 29 October | 8.00 am for 8.30 am to 10.00am
10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH
