Even the most fragile objects of history are exposed to threat. The spate of activist attacks on fine art in major European museums, including Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” and the Mona Lisa are a reminder that fine art claims are on the rise. In fact, while many acts of vandalism on museum artworks are common, they are rarely publicized. Creating awareness of potential risk exposures and asset vulnerability can potentially stop a loss event from escalating, or stem it completely.

In this podcast, we’re joined by Grace Best-Devereux, executive adjuster, fine art and jewellery, and Aliette Fenton-Sharp, claims underwriting director, who discuss the types of fine art claims Sedgwick handles, the importance of determining risk exposures and more.
