Giclees and Silkscreens
Panic set in in the art world when technology came along and the digital world of scanners and printers meant the number of copies was unlimited and only controlled by the publishers integrity. The art world needed a description and the term 'Giclee' - jet de liquide - was coined.. A nicer word than inkjet it was Frenchly artistic and became the industry standard description.
A Giclee print is created from the original painting.An extremely high resolution digital file is made by flatbed scanner,12 colour enhanced printers then output the image onto heavyweight archival paper or canvas capturing every detail and sublety of the original. The process provides better colour accuracy than any other means of reproduction and quality pigment inks ensure lightfastness for the foreseeable future.Numbered and signed by the artist it is as near to the original as a print can get !
