“The sleeping giant of philanthropy” | The Art Newspaper

Posted in News by chrisfremantle on January 24, 2011

Very interesting article (albeit with a very US focus) on the ways that artists deal with their estates through trusts and foundations.  The article highlights the very specific challenges where works of art form part of the assets of the trust or foundation.

Some of these are very well known (Andy Warhol, Pollock-Krasner, Henry Moore, etc) but there are also lots of new ones emerging.  Some are structured to give grants whilst others focus on research and collections.

and the report (in two volumes) is on the Aspen Institute site.
