Inheritance and Succession involving
Art Collections in Argentina
Throughout the history of humankind, Art has always been a very complex category. Also, it lacks consensus as regards its own definition. One undeniable aspect is that passion is a vital and inherent component of any work of art. From the artist who creates it, up to the audience who enjoys it. This same passion drives people to collect pieces of art.
It would be an almost impossible task to try to list the different kinds of art collections that may be inherited: From antiques, paintings, coins and stamps, classic cars, musical instruments, etc.
Unlike any other assets that can be considered just as an investment, an art collection very often involves a sentimental value. It is quite challenging to determine its value in terms of financial worth, and which may be the subject of controversy among the appointed heirs.
