The article looks at the significance of the practice of signing works of art. Art exhibition jurors contend that style is one kind of signature. It is assumed that pride is the motive behind signing one's work. However, objects which are intended for religious devotion were usually unsigned or signed slyly. It is believed that the passing of concerns about form and color and the arrival of concerns about insurance, valuation and copyright are marked by an artist's signature. Also, successful pieces with which artists wish to be identified bore their signatures. The viewer of the person behind the work is reminded by the signature.
