Signing dating artwork

Artists choose artists

I think so long as you describe them honestly then you should be fine. I have had adverse reactions to dates on my work. You may not think this is important now, but after you have been making art for several decades, you will understand why you need to date work. Still initials.

Do you include a date on your artwork?

In all the rest of the cases where no guardian angel or knowledgeable savior comes along in time, that art is off to oblivion. Unless an artist is nationally or internationally-famous to the point where buyers care more about the name than the piece itself, why do artists insist on big red signatures on their oil paintings that distract from the image? I do ot date my work i was ask but a buyer at one time to lower my price since the piece was three years old. (it tells me i’m done!!) i also sometimes write the first name of the model and or where i painted it. And my signature and date are as small as i can make them.

Color and light book

I was going to put title on the left and my name on the right side in pencil. Can i use my mothers maiden name?

Recent solo:

Depending on the quality, this is a nice print too (maybe). Well first of all a limited edition of something that isn’t a proper fine art print is a debateable asset – for the very reason you outlined.

Book: the art forgers handbook

If i am clear about my intention now i would like to repeat my question; how should i sign them ? do you have any suggesstion ? my best. Unfortunately, luck does not always come to the rescue. These ones are popular.

The best botanical art instruction books

What about not dating the piece in the front, but writing it on the back of the canvas? When collectors start paying a lot of money for something, they want assurances that it is by the artist it is said to be. Should i attach a label like one finds in clothes? this seems so, well, gauche. People buy art all the time and either lose or misplace their receipts or documentation, or just throw them out. I would probably just correct the sales page and then next time i email about it, say that i decided not to sign the open edition. That doesn’t seem fair does it?

Visitors in last 30 days

Some might not be freshly created, however, are essentially new offerings to the public and are hopefully valued as such. The hard truth is that people tend to underestimate how quickly their work gets forgotten or disassociated from the details of its creation. I come at the question from a marketing and sales standpoint, and from my perspective on the front lines of helping artists sell their work, i have only seen the dating of work as a negative.
