Artists Rights

Recently, FAA sold a print, which looked just like Picasso's "The Old Guitarist." I asked the artist if she had permission to paint and sell the famous artwork, and she said, "I was told that when an artist dies and you do not claim the painting as his, it is alright to do a piece and sell it." Copyright laws are complex, but death does not necessarily end the copyright on an artist's works. Picasso's estate, for instance, is very much engaged in granting permissions and in profiting from the use of the late artist's imagery. It is the artist's responsibility to obtain permission to use another artist's work if it is still under copyright. The best source to find out is the Artists Rights Society (ARS), www.arsny.com.
