Arts Are Failing to Widen Access to Jobs

When Is an Artwork Finished?
ARTnews
In nineteenth-century England, Varnishing Day was traditionally the time when artists arrived at an exhibition to put the finishing touches on their works and seal them with a coat of varnish. J. M. W. Turner famously arrived at one such event in 1835, where he proceeded to squeeze lumps of color onto a half-finished canvas and, according to various accounts, work without a break, using his fingers and a palette knife to coax the surface to life. In the end, the painting Turner produced was one of two versions depicting the burning of the Houses of Parliament a few months earlier.

Help Desk: Selling Unconventional Work
Daily Serving
I work for a gallery that has become known as a place for artists to take risks. While this is exciting and great, it is also frustrating—especially for the owner of the gallery, who has been in business for around twenty years and whose patience and enthusiasm, and subsequent income, is waning as a result of these artists' unconventional and less-popular work. How do we use this reputation to our advantage and pitch new work to potential collectors?

You have to use their embedded code, which includes branding, a bit of surveillance, and other moneymaking potential. When you embed these images, you're giving Getty access to information about who sees the image on your page and you provide them ad space on your site, a little virtual real estate where they might someday put up billboards.
