How it works

Collecting art and design on Artsy

If you’re interested in a for-sale work, simply visit the artwork page to send a message directly to the gallery or institution. You can ask about pricing, availability, shipping, and further details. Often, the more information you give the gallery about yourself, the quicker the response will be. You can also click “Ask an Artsy Specialist,” who will be happy to answer any questions you might have. There is no charge for making an inquiry or consulting with one of our specialists.
