In addition to representing today's most prominent working artists, ARS is proud to be in partnership with many renowned Estates and Foundations.

The Saul Steinberg Foundation

ARS has been handling rights requests for The Saul Steinberg Foundation for sixteen years, to the great benefit of the Foundation.  The processing of rights requests can be a complicated, time-consuming operation for the individual artist or artist’s representative.  By turning over all the paperwork and bookkeeping to the efficient people at ARS, the Foundation is relieved of this task.  Most important, the inclusion of the ARS credit line in captions and photo credits announces that a large, prestigious organization stands behind the artist.

The Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence Foundation

Before signing with ARS permissions requests were a mess, with so much time spent answering and returning phone calls, issuing invoices, collection, you name it – not only has ARS relieved us of the tedious responsibility of issuing various permissions, they monitor the landscape for legal issues. Most importantly, ARS has persistently fought for the rights of the visual artist to receive residual payments for work sold on the secondary market. It’s doubtful that the Lawrence Foundation would be able to exist without the professional assistance and leadership that ARS provides.
