• DACS Explains: What is the Artist's Resale Right?

    57 views 5 months ago
    The Artist's Resale Right (ARR) is a royalty that is essential for visual artists to know about.

    The Artist's Resale Right means that you could be entitled to a royalty when your work is resold for €1,000 or more, with the involvement of an auction house, gallery or dealer.

    As of 1 January 2012, the Right was extended in the UK to cover sales of work by deceased artists still in copyright, which means that your heirs will also be eligible for royalties. In the UK, copyright lasts for the lifetime of the artist plus 70 years after their death, to the end of that calendar year.

    This is the most significant new right for visual artists in recent times, giving you an ongoing stake in the value of your work.

    Established by artists for artists, DACS is a not-for-profit visual artists’ rights management organisation.

    ARR entitles artists and their estates to a modest royalty whenever their work is resold by an auctioneer, dealer or gallery for €1,000 or more.

    ARR is critical to the UK's creative economy, enabling artists to create new work and supporting artists' estates in managing the artist's legacy.

    Over the last ten years, artists and artists' estates have benefited from over £56 million in ARR via DACS.
