Clint Watson 's comment on Negotiating With Galleries - Part 3

All very good questions.

Back to Michel's initial questions. The problems he brings up ALREADY exist, at least in my mind.

For example, if an artist/dealer relationship ends, presumably that artist will be represented by another gallery (even if the artist chooses not to sell directly him/herself). Given today's internet search capabilities, most collectors still interested in that artist will move over to purchase from the "new" gallery. So, the problem already exists to a degree whether the first gallery shares collector names with the artist or not.

So perhaps sharing the names changes very little except earning the gallery a ton of goodwill with the artist.
