Art Loss and Databases: The Quest for a Free Single Unified System
by Foley, Thomas, M.A., Sotheby's Institute of Art - New York, 2015, 87; 10185640
Abstract (Summary)

This paper examines the effectiveness of existing art loss databases and how a free single unified art loss database would be a more effective option in the recovery of stolen art and in performing due diligence. The general consensus is that the combination of public and private controlled art loss databases existing today are poorly operated, inadequately funded and ineffective in the recovery of stolen art. With significant advances in technology and the growing problem of stolen art, this paper will propose a free single unified art loss database. A database that will become the market-leader and most effective resource for anyone seeking the return of stolen art.
