Ever since antiquity, the art market and the translocation of art have been closely related. The fourth issue of the Journal for Art Market Studies explores aspects of translocation facilitated by the art market, for example through lucrative trade in looted art as under the Nazis, the skillful exploitation of economic opportunities by wealthy overseas buyers, politically induced sales of national cultural assets as after the Russian Revolution, or the trade in colonial objects whose acquisition circumstances are often unknown.
