Limit Edition Giclée Print Limited Edition of 1000 prints 2010 Lunch time in Chicago and the intersection near Cal's Liquors is a busy place. The original photo was taken in 1985. It's a real challenge to make a complex composition work. The saturation is up overall to balance the warm tone against the cool colors. Van Buren & Wells
What Is A Giclée Print? This giclée print is currently the highest quality standard for printing limited edition prints. The term "giclée" (pronounced "ZHEE-CLAY") is a French word meaning "to spray." Giclée watercolor prints are created by spraying millions of droplets of ink onto archival watercolor paper. Prints are produced on state of the art printers, using an eight color pigmentation process with 100% archival inks. Giclée prints made with these wide-gamut pigmented inks are estimated to last over 80 years without noticeable fading. The growing recognition within the art community of the giclée print makes it a recognizable addition to my current artistic offerings.
What is a limited edition print? Every limited print is signed and numbered by me. The prints are numbered in the order they are purchased with lowest numbers being issued first. Limited edition prints, signed and dated by the artist are generally more valuable to art buyers for the obvious reasons of limited supply. If the demand exceeds the availability of the art, the prices and desirability increases.
