Art and Artists first
We felt the need for a new type of gallery, where each artist is showcased individually. We allow artists to define and appraise their own collections with our support. Each artist has a dedicated artist page. At Tones we are honoured and proud to represent these Artists and their Art.
In order to maintain high quality art we go through a meticulous selection process. All our artists have been published, won prizes, had exhibitions or sold art before.

More towards the artists
70% of the gross profits on every sale is paid out to the artist. One of the highest commisions in the industry.
In time, we aim to increase the artists share even further, to provide our artists with the means to do what they do best, create art.
Within the industry an artist normally receives a commision of between 40% and up to 70%, with the latter being fairly unique.
The costs depend on the size of the artwork and the framing. As each work has a different aspect-ratio, production costs vary slightly. For simplicity, we will show the production costs for one aspect ratio below. These are the production costs incl. shipping and tax. for the different sizes:
Starter = €35,46
Standard = €46,61
Premium = €74,91
Collector = €137,94
We allow each artist to determine the price for each size of their artworks to allow them to define their worth.
What do they earn?
70% of the total price - costs goes to the artists.
A 20 cm x 30 cm (starter) print will be sold for €75.
From that €75 we need to deduct the costs for production and shipping (€35,46). That equals to €39,, of which the artist gets 70%. For one print of €75 the artist earns €28,37.
Transparent, honest and honoured to represent.
We felt the need for a new type of gallery. One where we honour and showcase the collections of artists while being financially transparent. We show per piece how much the artist will earn, what production costs are and the cut we take to keep our heads afloat.
Act with integrity
We support, push and create space for artists.
Tones will provide a space for each artist to showcase their collection of art. We try to support them through financial hard times and even push them to the next level by financing a new collection.
All prices are determined by the artists themselves with our support.
Museum quality standards
Quality is never the question, art is priceless and is here to last.
We believe in these emerging artists and no matter where the future takes them, we take them and their art seriously. To make sure of this we only sell museum quality prints with certificates of authenticity, additionally this will make your house look like a gallery.
