‘Mind-blowing’: Why do men’s paintings cost 10 times more than women’s? In Leonardo’s long shadow … Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico, 1960. Photograph: Tony Vaccaro/Getty Images For every £1 fetched by a male artist’s work, one by a woman gets a mere 10p – and its value plummets further if she signs it. The creator of Recalculating Art, a shocking new radio exposé, reveals her findings. Are men 10 times better at painting than women? You might think so if you listened to the German artist Georg Baselitz, who famously told the Guardian in 2015 that “women don’t paint very well. It’s a fact. The m ..read more

Saving a Unique Sculpture from being “binned off” As specialist art insurers, most of our frustrations stem from those who create, curate, house, trade and display valuable works of art thinking unfortunate events won’t happen to them. In fairness, our very purpose as the insurance provider is that we leave nothing unaccounted for, and work to keep our clients safeguarded against every possible eventuality. This means our policies have to cover some unlikely and extreme circumstances, ranging from robbery to terrorism. “But what are the chances it will happen to me?” When only extreme and w ..read more

Not all Cover is Created Equal: Office & Shop vs Bespoke Gallery Cover In the art world, many dealers and gallery owners don’t realise their insurance isn’t enough until it fails them. The frustrating part for us as insurance providers is that, we know the grave repercussions that come from insufficient cover are mostly down to nothing more than misconception. The dangers of basic shop & office policies As we touched upon in our Realist’s Guide to Art Insurance, many owners of galleries, studios or other small arts businesses presume that they’re protected by the terms and conditions ..read more

Why Public Liability Cover is not always enough for Gallery Owners The Art Business News once cited “human intervention” as the primary reason that artwork gets damaged. But while we tend to think of artworks as delicate paper and paint, they can present just as much risk as the people around them – especially sculptures that are made from heavy materials or that sport a lot of sharp edges. Countless artworks have injured admirers at exhibits, and caused damage to the surrounding property (and staff) during installation.   Sometimes it doesn’t matter how careful your handlers and carriers ..read more
