Art Valuation, Estate Planning, Probate, Divorce, Fine Art Insurance – The True Story of a “Priceless Icon”


Fought over in a bitter divorce settlement, then stolen and recuperated, hand delivered to me by a white gloved driver in a Rolls Royce and then threatened with my life… this story of a “Priceless Russian Renaissance Icon” has a few twists and turns… and a great moral to the story.

Art valuations and appraisals seem like a “no brainer” for inheritance (IRS) and probate. But what about divorce settlement, estate planning, evaluating fine art insurance?

The process may require art analysis and art authentication services; it may involve art fraud. You may need the services of an expert witness and legal testimony… or at least official reports and documentation.
