Useful Art Gallery Terms


Architecture, General Culture

Via art collectors I found these useful art gallery terms. Some very funny, such as “Limited edition” meaning “Generally, art produced in sufficient quantities that its practical availability will be unlimited.” (“Isn’t that cute, isn’t that true?” - Dusty Towne) or “Secondary market”: “The art world equivalent of a used-car lot, where work is sold with no benefit to the artist, except the rise or fall of his reputation.”
