Pace University - School of Law

Legal change ofter mirrors society's broader social, political, and economic developments. As society becomes more complex the law evolves to meet additional needs, often by becoming more specialized. In recent years the consumer, environmental, and welfare movements, as well as the demands of the poor and disadvantaged for civil and economic rights, have led to changes in the law and to the development of new legal specialties. One area of the law which has most recently become sufficiently particularized to be considered a discrete legal specialty is art law. By art law we refer to the practices of traditional legal specialties such as commercial law, contracts, copyright, entertainment, interfiational law, labor relations, and tax law as they have evolved to meet the ever more particular needs of the visual artist. It is the purpose of this Article to examine the practical and legal origins of the field of art law, and to highlight principal legal questions which are of significant concern to the visual artist.
