Daniel Grant’s List of Famously Unknown Artists

For a while now we’ve been saying that the so-called “art world” is becoming more and more “legalized,” that is, informed and infected by the law. This is for the better and the worse.

Arts writer Daniel Grant takes a look at some of art law’s past heroes and heroines (or villains, depending on who you ask) and the ground they’ve paved in the name of artistic expression.

there may be a different group of artists who deserve their own separate pantheon—those who have made judicial, rather than art, history—for expanding artistic freedom and enabling other artists to create work without fear of prosecution.
