Protecting Your Art Collection


Today, a new generation of art collectors has emerged for which art is an increasingly important asset. Many art lovers own collections or actively transact in the art market with appreciation and pleasure.

Protecting your art collections from physical damage and financial loss is essential. There are many things you can do to minimize the risk of damage, including storing paintings in climate-controlled environments, displaying them correctly, and insuring them against loss.

You should also create a lifetime playbook for acquisitions and dispositions, so that you can make informed decisions about adding to or selling your collection. Finally, it is important to consider the tax implications of passing your collection on to the next generation. With careful planning, you can minimize the impact of taxes and ensure that your heirs receive the full value of your collection.
