Important notice for artists
Recognise and report scams
The National Gallery urges artists to take care online. Be aware of scams targeting artists, where bad actors pose as gallery curators enquiring about acquiring or exhibiting works of art. The National Gallery would not acquire works of art through social media channels. For more information about how to protect yourself against scams, visit Scamwatch.
