About this title


With the rapid and unprecedented global expansion of the art market, new collectors are emerging every day. When buying art, whether for pure enjoyment, investment or some other motive, few art collectors consider the practical and financial implications of owning and maintaining art, and many do not have a plan for how they might eventually dispose of it. This book, probing a number of resources and incorporating advice from top experts in the field, offers guidance on collection management and care, and serves as an important reference guide for collectors and those charged with managing collections. Mary Rozell draws on her long experience as both an art collection management professional and an art lawyer to illuminate some of the myriad issues that arise when managing an art collection. Covering acquisition, inventory management, the insurance, security, storage and conservation of collections, art financing and investing, and the sharing and deaccessioning of artworks, this Handbook will be an essential resource for art collectors, curators, enthusiasts and all those with responsibility for art collections of all kinds.


&#x201c;Rozell&#x2019;s book is a superb resource for art collectors to have on hand, covering all aspects of planning, management and care. It is exhaustively researched and extremely well-presented and is a must for any art professional to have in their library.&#x201d;&nbsp; --- <strong>Agnes Gund, President Emerita, Museum of Modern Art; art patron and Founder, Studio in a School<br />&nbsp;</strong> &#x201c;This Handbook should be required reading for anybody who aspires to a professional career within today&#x2019;s art market. Rozell handles her subject with deft care, touching upon numerous issues that currently preoccupy the trade &#x2013; from the fundamentals of building a collection, to the nuances of taxation, insurance, and conservation that continue to perplex even seasoned players. The outcome is a novel contribution to the ballooning body of art business literature that is both enriching and also thoroughly accessible and enjoyable.&#x201d; &nbsp;--- <strong>Noah Horowitz, author of Art of the Deal: Contemporary Art in a Global Financial Marketplace (Princeton University Press, 2011); Executive Director of The Armory Show&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;</strong> &nbsp;&#x201c;Consolidating the author's many years of front-line experience, The Art Collector's Handbook will benefit both new and experienced collectors with its advice on navigating the art market, as well as the potential pitfalls of collecting art, so the enjoyment can be maximized. &nbsp;It will help new collectors jump the learning curve, and serve as a valuable reference for established collectors and professionals. &nbsp;A thorough, well-informed guide to the business of collecting.&#x201d;&nbsp; &nbsp;--- <strong>Mary Hoeveler, M.G. Hoeveler, Ltd., Art Advisory; former head of international art advisory for Citigroup Private Bank<br />&nbsp;</strong> &#x201c;The Art Collector's Handbook: A Guide to Collection Management and Care is positioned to become the authoritative source on the management and care of art essential resource for curators and registrars.&#x201d; &nbsp; --- <strong>Art Libraries Society of North America</strong>
