There is nothing more disappointing for a collector than discovering that the artwork they found and fell in love with is not available for sale.
To provide the best experience for our collectors and ensure accurate art availability, we kindly request all artists to renew their artworks every 365 days from publishing them for sale.
What artwork types have an expiration period?
All originals, including Limited Editions with multiple quantities, published for sale have an expiration period of 365 days. All drafts, published not for sale, and sold artworks do not expire. Open Edition prints do not expire.
What artworks do not have an expiration period?
All Open Edition prints do not have expiration dates as they are produced by Saatchi Art on demand on your behalf. If you would like to make any of your original artworks available as an Open Edition please edit your listings and select “Add Prints for Sale” on each individual listing.
What happens to the artwork after it expires?
The artwork remains to be published and visible in your portfolio, however it’s status will be “Not for Sale.” Open Edition prints will remain for sale.
What to do if the artwork has expired?
If the artwork expired but in fact it is still available for purchase, please visit Studio and make it available for sale again.
How to renew an artwork?
To renew an artwork, log in to Studio and click the 'Renew' button next to the artwork that is about to expire. If you do not see the 'Renew' button, it means an artwork is not eligible for a renewal yet.
How is 'Artwork Expiration' different from 'Artist Check-in' policy?
'Artist Check-in' process ensures that artists are active on Saatchi Art and maintaining their accounts. 'Artwork Expiration and Renewal' process ensures that active artists have accurate artwork availability information. Learn more about 'Artist Check-in' policy here.
