Most local galleries make at least 50-70% commissions on whatever they sell. The only way to avoid this 50-70% markup on all artwork items such as Chinese artwork, military artwork, artwork Jesus, patriotic artwork, etc … is buying directly from the artist itself.
Keep in mind that artists will be more than the possibility of not selling their art collections cheaper than the cost to sell it to the art gallery, but you still see a price decline of 50-70%. That is said, if you buy directly from the artist itself through an art gallery online, you can resell this artwork with the price of markup in your own online art gallery.
