Chubb Masterpiece® Valuable Articles Coverage Highlights

As one of the world's largest insurers of art and antiques, you can count on our unparalleled service and expertise, along with some of the broadest art protection available.

Individualized Coverage

We offer flexible, worldwide coverage options to meet your unique needs, and cover most fine art losses with no deductible.

Automatic Coverage for New Items

If you already have fine art that is itemized on your policy, your newly acquired artwork is covered for up to 90 days (25 percent of the itemized coverage).

Liberal Appraisal Requirements

We only require appraisals for individual fine art items valued at $250,000 or more. Otherwise, we just need a detailed description and estimated value.

Paying Market Value

If the market value of an item before a loss exceeds the amount of coverage, we’ll pay up to 150 percent of the amount itemized on your policy to account for increases in market value.

Agreed Value Feature

We’ll work with you upfront to determine the value of your fine art. Then, for covered total losses, we’ll make sure you get 100 percent of the agreed value as a cash settlement.

Blanket or Scheduled Items

Protect an entire art collection with blanket coverage, itemize your fine art pieces individually, or do both. It’s up to you.

In-House Fine Art Services

Chubb’s fine art practice brings together the expertise of our worldwide in-house resources in underwriting, loss prevention, and claims. Our specialists have degrees and advanced training in art and collectibles, and prior experience working for museums, galleries, auction houses, and art warehouses. They are available to provide referrals to fine art professionals as well as services such as:

  • Review of loan and consignment agreements — To determine the acceptability of a borrowing institution such as a museum or consignee from a loss-control perspective.
  • Staff management training — To ensure that your household staff understand the proper way to care for, clean around, and protect artwork and outdoor sculpture, including environment controls, protecting items in high-traffic areas, and temporary storage of items onsite.
