Considerations in Pricing Your Artwork
Retired Associate Dean of Academic Affairs of —Graduate Programs of School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, David Lloyd Brown, has been pricing and placing his own artwork since his first painting sale at age 14. Over 50 years later, he has taken an in-depth journey into monetarizing paintings, drawings, prints, and installations.
In this presentation, Mr. Brown will discuss what an artist must consider when pricing their artwork. He will cover a variety of factors that determine the price an artist attaches to their creations. Mr. Brown will recount experiences from his own career exhibiting and placing art in the U.S., the Netherlands, the UK, art auctions, fund-raisers, and private and corporate collections. We will explore dealing with dealers and recount studio visits from collectors and art lovers from the 1980s through today’s hyperactive open studio environment. We will see how these factors impact the price of your artwork.
