If you’re an artist providing commissioned works, or someone who’d like to commission an artwork, then it’s a good idea to enter an Artwork Commission Agreement to clearly define the terms of the arrangement. 


It’s important to set out exactly what services are required from the artist and what the artist will be paid.  Other issues including delivery requirements, ownership and exclusivity should also be agreed on before the artist commences any work.  Our Artist Commission Agreement Checklist helps you clarify what the exact terms of your artwork commissioning arrangement are.

If you can’t answer certain questions, you’ll probably need legal advice, so just put ‘I don’t know’ or get in touch!
