About this Course

This course will discuss the current legal standard defining due diligence, its limitations, and the varied approaches attempting to address due diligence requirements in the market. It will provide a suggested framework and checklist to satisfy due diligence requirements in provenance research for artworks. U.S. courts have the means to enforce proper ownership rights, yet the market is encountering significant challenges in implementing due diligence standards to comply with the relevant legal requirements.
