The Desk Book of Art Law
Review by James J. Fishman of the book The Desk Book of Art Law [Washington, DC: Federal Publications, 1978. 1373 p.].
The Desk Book of Art Law is an exhaustive study of the field. The book is extremely well organized throughout. DuBoff seems to have read every case or statute that relates in any way to the visual arts. Besides a brief introductory section, the book is divided into five major sections: the work of art; governmental and other assistance; art purchases; the artist; and special problems of museums. There is an appendix containing forty-three forms, treaties, sample contracts, legal briefs, and documents.
