Art & Cultural Property in Cyprus


The home to some of histories most vivacious and artistic travellers and empires, Cyprus displays a diversity of art and culture unseen in much of the world. With a strong sense of history Cyprus has the traces of the Neolithic period’s impressive temples, to the art forms of the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, the Romans, and the Byzantines to more modern forms from the French and the timeless classics of Caravaggio.

The legal plain of Art and Culture has become one of the fastest growing sub-sectors of the legal field, involved in high publicity diplomatic issues such as the Elgin Marbles to the centre of global copyright disputes. The value of Art and Culture transcends monetary lines and thus the protection of Cultural property holds both individual and national importance, for both today and future generations.

Whether an artist, a collector or an institution, Chetcuti Cauchi’s Art and Cultural Property Law team can provide the necessary assistance for the copyrighting, valuation, authentication and protection of all forms of Art and Culture. We have considerable experience working with museums, rights holders, collecting societies, dealers and artists on matters such as tax, funding, commercial arrangements, transactions, protection and promotion of their intellectual property rights, provenance and clearing of title.
