Business & Art

This page contains links to selected information that will introduce you to the Business side of Art, e.g. Management, Galleries, Marketing, Sales, Tools...

The 'Business of Art' involves dealing and handling art as though it is a commercial commodity. It encompasses the buying and selling of art, the valuing of art through appraisal, and working with galleries, art fairs, and dealers that market works of art. For those who study art for its aesthetic appeal or its reflection of society, the business end of the art world is somewhat unnerving.
