This guide is based on real-life scenarios and best practices in managing an art studio archive. It will aid artists in every career stage, from emerging artists to late-career artists; the yet-to- be-discovered and the well-established. Increasing productivity in the studio with good documentation helps artists better prepare to sell work and secure grant funding, as well as manage better the legal and financial aspects of an artistic practice.
