When a painting changes ownership, this catalog includes the price, if known, as part of the Provenance. For auction sales, reported hammer prices have been adjusted to include the advertised buyer's premium. If the buyer's premium is unknown, the price is followed by the word "(hammer)". Sale prices do not include sales taxes because the amount is not often revealed and it may depend on the identity of the buyer—sales to dealers, museums, and out-of-state buyers may be exempt from sales tax. One should keep in mind that the actual price paid by the buyer may be different because of behind-the-scenes negotiations, agent commissions, discounts for cash, and credit card surcharges.
