What do you think about the price of some work of arts? I think artists can be quite sceptical with the art market, as it can be contradictory with what they want to tell with their art

Hello Amy, artists profit off their own work when it’s sold on the “primary market,” directly from a gallery or from the artist her/himself. When art is sold on the “secondary market,” when it’s sold by a collector to another collector, either privately or at an auction, only the seller and, if applicable, the auction house profits. With that system, artists don't really get what they really deserve, even if when their work is sold, their future work will profit them better.

We have to keep in mind that most art isn’t as expensive as what we can see at Christie’s for example
