Often I am selling art objects for thousands of dollars and I hope to continue doing that; however I realize that a lot of the people who like my work don't have thousands of dollars with which to purchase fine art. So for a limited time, I am offering this reasonably-priced little drawing in case you do want a drawing by me for you.
When buying fine artwork it is important to have a clear idea of what you are getting. Ownership of art can be divided into two basic parts.
1. Ownership of the art object
2. Ownership of the intellectual rights, or copyright.
Typically, when a collector buys a work of art, she or he is buying the art object which then may be displayed and kept or eventually sold by the collector. The artist retains the copyright, which is the right to reproduce and profit from the image apart from the art object. For example, the collector can't make shirts of the art and sell them. That remains the right of the artist.
So, the artist owns the idea and the image and may continue to profit from, reproduce, or do versions of that idea. The collector stands to gain from the resale of an object in demand.
