Who pays the Artist’s Resale Right?

Under the UK Regulations, the seller of the work is jointly responsible and shares the responsibility with:


i) the agent of the seller, or if the seller is not using an agent
ii) the agent of the buyer, or if the buyer is not using an agent
iii) the buyer, provided the seller, agent or buyer is an art market professional.


In practice, the art market professional may provide, in their terms, for the buyer to pay the Artist’s Resale Right (ARR) royalties.
