The black market for art includes works stolen from collections or looted from archaeological sites, as well as forgeries and banned pieces. Thieves often encounter more difficulty selling stolen masterpieces than obscure works, as collectors able to afford such art are generally sophisticated enough to hear news of the theft.
With this update, Grove Art publishes 18 new articles on art markets, dealers, and exhibitions, as well as 39 revised articles covering American and European art.
