Abandoned and Forgotten Fine Art

Abandoned and Forgotten Fine Art

18 February, 2013

A popular US newspaper recently reported a story about a fine art storage company being forced to sell a number of pieces that appeared to have been abandoned at their storage facility. According to the newspaper report, the pieces had been in storage for a number of years and when the owner ceased paying the storage fees, despite every attempt being made to contact him, the storage facility was forced to sell the artwork as a way of accruing the loss of storage revenue.

Now you may think that this is a one-off incident but you’d be surprised about how many pieces of fine art are put into storage and apparently forgotten about. There are a wide range of reasons for this including medical conditions such as memory loss or dementia, death and personal reasons. Whatever the reason, you don’t want you fine art pieces or collections meeting the same fate in years to come. This is why we recommend taking advantage of our photographic inventory service.

Our photographic inventory service documents all the pieces you have storage with us, as well as including photographs and should the worst happen, gives you or your family the chance to re-claim your artwork.

If you would like to know more about our photographic inventory service, please contact us.
