Like when a pro artist does a painting. Do they paint just one and then print multiple copies. Or do they themselfs paint the same picture over and over again?

How do you even buy art?

yes i'm an idiot..

they paint a picture once, and that picture is duplicated, either by other artists (there are professional "painting duplicators" that are sold as copies or restaurations to museums), or by machines that are distributed as prints for normal people.

Art galleries sell paintings, there was an art gallery near my place in Berlin where you could buy a bunch of original Chet Zar paintings.

EDIT: I would've bought one, but they were like 1200 bucks, and I had no monies. One day I'm gonna save up and get one, though. They're amazing.

They paint one, and the rest are printed copies of course,
if they were painting each and every one of them by hand, the pictures would have costed thousands and most people wouldn't be able to afford them.

This.

It's split into like

Original (one off)

Copies (Can be any amount, usually around 14 I believe but don't quote me on it)

Prints that are mass produced.

My dad has a copy of a Rolf Harris painting, it's number like 8 of 14, worth a fair bit.

So how on earth do Renaissance masters get hold of a printer?? :S

How do we even know of their paintings??

Because the originals were kept until eventually found, and put into the process of mass production.

because they still exist today. There are tons of museums with paintings that are centuries old, and though parts of them have lost their color, that's where art restaurators come in. They re-paint the parts of the pictures that are either burnt or have deteriorated over time.

So how much would an average painting by a surreal great like Salvador Dali cost me? LOL.. must be pretty harsh on the pocket..

Most paintings get duplicated so people can have copies. But original paintings from great artists go for a lot. I mean really. A coulpe weeks ago a painting by portuguese paiter Paula Rego went for abou 250 thousand euros. Something around that.

an original?

You could buy a house for that amount of money.

A simple printing of the painting?

About 20 bucks, give or take.

EDIT: http://www.dali-gallery.com/posters/index.htm

yup, anywhere from 10 - 25 dollars.

Ah, Dali... That would leave you without a pocket...or any clothes...actually without any material possessions, because you would have to sell them all to afford it.

EDIT: Im referring to an original of course

Im sure you could pick up a really good copy for somewhere between $700-$1200 and a reprint for $150 or so. They make posters though, as stated above me, and those are cheap.

No-one's selling original Dali's these days- unless they want to lose up to 70% of what they originally paid for it. Dali's works have actually depreciated in value since his death. So the questions isn't "how much can I get a Dali for?", it's "where the HELL can I get a Dali from?"

Art is totally subjective, i could piss in the snow and someone would call it art.

I would be genuinely annoyed at you if you bought an original Dali work for yourself. His stuff should be in a gallery where everyone can see it.

Isn't that what most people who own paintings do, anyways? Rent the paintings to museums and get paid for it being hung there?
