For Art Market Professionals

Giving artists an ongoing stake in the value of their work.

The Artist’s Resale Right may require you to pay a royalty when an artwork resells for €1,000 or more.

The Artist’s Resale Right continues to apply after the UK's departure from the European Union. The government has reviewed Artist's Resale Right legislation to ensure that it remains effective from 1 January 2021. The Artist’s Resale Right will therefore continue to apply to sales taking place in the UK. Further information available at the UK Gov website.
