The overriding concern for artists in the 19th century marketplace

In the 19th century, artists attempted to “solve the problem of finding a secure career in painting” (White and White) as the Academy was dying and genre painting became the trend. Consequently, a “much larger market for paintings was needed and could be mobilized in the 19th c.” Thus, emerged the dealer-critic system. The 19th century artist was concerned with becoming alienated from his work or loosing control of the work; some artists became an artist-entrepreneur to, in a way, maintain control over his work.
