Many of these galleries take 40-60% of the sale as their part in presenting, advertising and handling the many details of selling a piece of work.
What has happened in the art world is that the Internet has made art more accessible. With that why is it that Galleries are increasing in popularity? Because the artist knows how to maximize their time and put it to the highest and best use.
