Details: The inheritance of collections, whether carefully assembled works of art or family portraits and memorabilia, can present challenges to the beneficiaries. To manage these unique assets, heirs may need to consider legal, financial, and insurance planning. This balancing act can be complicated by a selective art market and limits on what museums will purchase or accept as donations. In an engaging conversation, experts discuss options beneficiaries should consider when making plans for the future of their family treasures.
