With two cases before the U.S. Supreme Court this year related to the application of the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA) to art matters (Philipp v. Federal Republic of Germany and Republic of Hungary v. Simon), it is the opportune time to examine the intersection of these areas. Whereas the FSIA has been applied to invoke jurisdiction over foreign sovereigns in fine art disputes, the FSIA was first cited in an antiquities dispute only two years ago. The panel will examine the history of sovereign immunity, the passage of the FSIA in 1976, its subsequent application in a number of historic art law cases, and its recent invocation in antiquities disputes.
