Specialist insurance for works of art
Fine art insurance can be added to an existing insurance policy, or bought separately as a standalone cover via your broker. We can protect fine art whether it is contemporary or classic, an individual item or a collection, as long as it is something which could be bought and sold at a reputable auction house.
More than just an insurer
Our specialist fine art policy caters specifically for high value, rare and unique items, so you can be sure nothing is left to chance. Because of our expertise, we can offer more than just insurance. Just some of the items we can cover are; paintings, jewellery, regalia, ceramics, glass and metal ware, sculptures, furniture, textiles and tapestries, gold and silver items and antiques.

Do I need to have insurance with Ecclesiastical to buy a Fine Art policy?
No, this cover can be added to your cover if you have an existing policy or can be bought as a policy in its own right.
Can you cover fine art which has been loaned?
You should obtain a Loan Agreement for any loaned art you wish to insure. Conditions may apply when art is on loan so you should make us, or your insurance broker, aware of the circumstances.
