Art and business combine to affect all artists differently.
For those selling art, an understanding of the art world and the ways of art
business at galleries, auctions, and museums comes into play. But marketing art
has become something artists can and do pursue individually, selling art online
and creating websites that are essentially online galleries. No matter how an
artist chooses to pursue selling paintings or drawings, it is vital to present
oneself professionally, photograph artwork that accurately represents the work,
and maintain organized inventories and records of one’s output.
