Art Theft Register

 

Art and cultural property theft is a rapidly growing criminal enterprise in South Africa, the magnitude of which has been highlighted by the recent thefts of valuable and culturally symbolic art pieces.

In an attempt to generate awareness of art and cultural property theft, Artinsure has established an art theft register, which acts as a comprehensive archive of stolen art in the country. 
 
We are committed to the protection of South Africa’s cultural heritage, with the Art Theft Register designed to provide information and assistance in the recovery of these stolen works. 
 
Should you have any information regarding stolen artworks or cultural property, or would like to register stolen art works, please contact us.
 
Please contact info@artinsure.co.za should you have any information regarding these missing artworks or if you want to register a missing artwork
