I worry I have been sleeping on my rights.
It has been the practice of art galleries in Ireland to keep the very identity of purchasers secret from the artists that the gallery “represents”.
Now as a consequence of Directive 2001/84EC and The European Communities (Artist’s Resale Right) Regulations (SI 312 of 2006), we artists are entitled to information from the gallery which will enable us to enforce our claims for a percentage of any money generated on a resale of our work.
I must urgently write to my gallery for the names and addresses of my buyers.
NOTE for naive artists; terms and conditions apply
