Sandy's Impact on the Art World.

November 5, 2012

Sandy has had a terrible impact on New York and New Jersey and <a href="">initial damages estimates</a> are in excess of 30 billion.  One specific area of damages is in respect of fine arts.  As this <a href="">interesting piece</a> makes clear, many lower Manhattan galleries and dealers were hard hit and while there should be insurance on the works themselves (although we all know what complications therein can exist -- especially in respect of valuation), coverage for the businesses themselves might be lacking.  Stay tuned for a flurry of claims!
