Legal Protection for Artists and Galleries

Why artists and galleries need legal protection

In the past, many arrangements between artists and galleries have been formed on a handshake, sometimes with gallery owners helping out promising but struggling artists on an ad hoc basis, either in money or in kind.

Not surprisingly, this has often led to troubles down the line when communication has broken down between the two parties or they have parted professional company.

There are often further problems when the artist is disabled or dies and members of the family are trying to sort out difficulties with the estate, calculate the value of works, and put them up for resale.

This has also been complicated by the Resale Royalty Right for Visual Artists Act 2009.
