Art Theft Registery
With the rising prices of SA art new industries have emerged including better comprehensive Art Insurance for your collection (-if your insurance broker is still lumping your Stern collection with office filing cabinets, you had better be worried).
Artinsure has introduced South Africa’s first Art Theft Register in response to the increase in frequency of art theft in South Africa. They have created an art loss register which will be accessible to all. This register will help in maximising publicity on stolen artworks and lower the probability of resale and movement.
Anyone will be able to register missing or stolen artworks.
Please send all details of missing art works to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The register can also be used to cross check when encountering works of art that are on offer for sale. The register is not intended to be all encompassing, but the higher the utilisation of the register, the greater the probability of identifying missing works.
