About Giclee Prints
“Giclee” is the name for the process of creating beautiful high quality fine art prints, generated from ultra high resolution digital scans made directly from the original painting, on a large flat bed scanner. After the artwork is scanned, using calibrated monitors and an artist’s skill, this digital version is then color-corrected and calibrated to display the precise quality of tone and color as the original painting.
The Giclee print is then printed utilizing a high-end, twelve color, wide format printer with archival inks onto 300 pound, heavy weight, museum quality fine art paper. This complex process ensures absolute color accuracy and precise photographic detail, which results in a quality of reproduction which is virtually perfect.
Examples of Giclee prints are commonly found in museums, art galleries, and private collections around the world. Recent auctions of Giclee prints from the works of notable artists have fetched between $10,800 and $35,000.
All prints are hand signed and numbered by the artist. In a limited edition of 150 prints, and include a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
