A red dot on a piece of art indicates that the piece has been sold. This is an American gallery tradition. By using the red dot, the gallery indicates a piece is no longer available for purchase while still leaving it on view for the remainder of an exhibit.
It's purpose is the same on a FASO website. Small red dots appear on images that have been marked with an Availability of Sold.
NOTE: Red dots are specifically used to indicate that something that was for sale has been sold.
A red dot will not show on a piece marked as Private Collection.
Red Dots will only display on thumbnail images unless you have attached PayPal to your account.
When PayPal is attached, a red dot will also show on the Zoom view of the artwork.
