INFORMATION ON GICLEE PROCESS

PRINT, POSTERS OR REPRODUCTION ON CANVAS

A print or poster is made from an original painting.  If you're looking for something a little more dramatic than a print or poster, then reproduction of the paintings from our gallery on canvas is the answer. Reproduction on canvas (Giclee) has the appearance of an original work of art and has great appreciation value, yet is less expensive. All Giclees wil be signed and dated.  
 

REPRODUCTION ON CANVAS
About Giclee Printing

The Definition : Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt".
The Term : The term  "giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
The Process :
Giclee prints are created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. Among the manufacturers of these printers are vanguards such as Epson, MacDermid Colorspan, & Hewlett-Packard. These modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets. Giclee prints are sometimes mistakenly referred to as Iris prints, which are 4-Color ink-jet prints from a printer pioneered in the late 1970s by Iris Graphics.
The Advantages :
Giclee prints are advantageous to artists who do not find it feasible to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art as needed, or on-demand. Once an image is digitally archived, additional reproductions can be made with minimal effort and reasonable cost. The prohibitive up-front cost of mass production for an edition is eliminated. Archived files will not deteriorate in quality as negatives and film inherently do. Another tremendous advantage of giclee printing is that digital images can be reproduced to almost any size and onto various media, giving the artist the ability to customize prints for a specific client.
THE QUALITY :
The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.

It is a reproduction and can be done in limited signed by the artist editions, so that the value continues to increase, much like a painting appreciates. 

It is the breakthrough that allows familes to commission an original portrait of their loved one and then, with permission of the artist, be able to buy giclee on canvas prints to duplicate it for other family members. Of course the original signed work is the most valuable and coveted, at this time, but the Giclee is remarkable! 

THE MARKET:
 Numerous examples of giclee prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctions of giclee prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Leibovitz, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $22,800 for Wolfgang Tillmans (April 23/24 2004, Photographs, New York, Phillips de Pury & Company.)
