Breaking Into the Art Market from an Agent’s Perspective

Original Article Written By Carolyn Edlund

Q & A on Breaking into the Art Market

A reader named Marcus recently posted a comment on this blog to an article titled “Interview with Artist’s Agent Samantha Levin”.  Samantha followed up with a message that I felt was so on-point and instructive, I’m posting it here as an article in itself.

See if you find common ground with Marcus.  I give him credit for reaching out, and applaud Samantha for her frank and detailed response – which is good advice for any emerging artist looking for representation today.  The comments are published in their original form.
