    Contract under seal would do the job. As it is it would depend on evidence and just sending them might only transfer possession and not ownership especially as there is no consideration. Nothing to do with the other paintings. Title can be to individual paintings.

    Think about the every-effort rule.

    The scenario is that that a woman promises her brother 12 paintings, and gives him 3 of them a month later. A few of the paintings are still in museums and one is with the woman in her workshop. The woman dies a year later havin. Done no more in regard to this disposition. The brother now wants to claim entitlement to all 12 paintings, is this possible? I guess my question is, is the gift valid?
