Can I negotiate price of painting?

In general, art prices are negotiable. You will likely be able to negotiate a fair price for a piece of art when purchasing directly from the artist. The odds of successfully negotiating a discount at an art gallery, however, is unlikely.

Is it rude to haggle with artists?

In the art world, negotiating prices is generally viewed as part of the buying process. That’s just the way it is. Ask any gallery owner; they have to negotiate prices all the time. Always keep in mind that anyone who is willing to make an offer already likes your art enough to want to own it, and that’s saying plenty.

How do paintings get priced?

Multiply the painting’s width by its length to arrive at the total size, in square inches. Then multiply that number by a set dollar amount that’s appropriate for your reputation. I currently use $6 per square inch for oil paintings. Then calculate your cost of canvas and framing, and then double that number.

Who decides the price of a painting?

According to Augusto Arbizo, director of New York’s of 11R gallery, price is determined by “an artists exhibition history, sales history (if any), career level, and size of artwork.” He added that “sometimes, production costs are factored in as a cost that needs to be recouped.”
