Frequently Asked Questions

What is Amorosart ?

Amorosart is a portal which allows art professionals to present their galleries and collections, to announce their future and/or past exhibitions, to publish their gallery news (fairs, shows, publications) but, above all, to exhibit their artworks and prints on a global marketplace and to establish contacts with potential clients and partners. Amorosart is a channel between gallery owners and collectors around the globe, uniquely dedicated to modern and contemporary prints and illustrated books.

What are the pre-requisites to subscribe to Amorosart ?

Using Amorosart is simple! Our web designers have worked hard to make the site intuitive and simple, allowing everyone to create their own virtual gallery. The only skills needed are the following :

- Surfing the internet.

- Viewing, reading and sending emails.

What is the best way to take photos of a work on paper ?

Here are some simple guidelines to taking good photos of your works :

1) Remove the print or engraving from its frame if it is framed. This will prevent light reflections.

2) Choose, if possible, to use a diffused light. You can use the sun, for example, or other indirect lighting to achieve a homogenous lighting which will not cast any shadows on the work.

3) Do not use flash. Using flash may create a large, bright light in the middle of your work, distorting the actual appearance of your artwork.

4) If your work is of exceptional quality, do not hesitate to use a professional photographer who is better equipped to take a flawless picture. Remember that works which are well photographed have much better chances of being sold.

What about new works on Amorosart ?

When you publish a print, it will automatically be included in the site's 'new items' category for 24 hours. This section is frequently viewed by buyers who visit our site regularly in the hunt for new works. Do not hesitate to regularly add works as you continue to make purchases in order to attract new clients.

Is Amorosart moderated ?

In order to preserve the quality of our service, we perform an 'a posteriori' control of new works and information. Our moderators retain the right to remove works under the following conditions :

- The photo quality is insufficient.

- Information on the work is erroneous.

- The authenticity of the work is questionable.

- The work is not by the cited artist.

You will be notified of the suspension of the work and you will be invited to delete it or to correct its content.

What if you cannot find an artist in your member space ?

We have created a complete list of artists who represent, in our view, the main players in modern and contemporary art. This list is largely exhaustive but if an artist is not included, you can make a suggestion by writing to us on artiste@amorosart.com. We reserve the right to accept or to refuse a suggestion for a new artist.
