Law has an ambivalent relationship with artistic and cultural material, for the artistic is malleable and unstable. Law assumes and prefers the stable and reliable, and the closed, and distrusts the vagaries that typify the artistic. Law likes to keep its distance from the artistic, though it is happy to be its judge, and to have its own views on art. It then firmly intrudes into the artistic, especially where rogue aspects of art and culture operate. While law is unable to trust its judgment about the artistic and cultural, it will still make art experts and institution subject to the overriding truth of the law.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
