What makes a limited edition valuable?

Here are some of the reasons why an art buyer should seriously consider purchasing a limited edition.

Generally speaking limited editions of below 400 in number are proven to escalate in value as the edition begins to sell out. As with any situation where demand exceeds supply rarity becomes a factor and the artwork increases in value.

Artworks chosen for limited edition reproduction are carefully selected from the very best original artworks produced by the artist.

Limited editions are a wonderful cost-effective alternative to purchasing the original painting and are often indistinguishable from the original work of art.

When considering an investment in art, it is generally wiser to own a quality limited edition from an established credentialed artist with a proven track record than to speculate on an original artwork from a lesser-known artist.

For practical reasons there are many situations in which a cost-effective limited edition could be the first choice. These include: vacation homes; gifts; display in executive offices, or any environment in which you wish to maintain a level of quality, but in which an original work would not be practical, secure or cost effective.

What are Giclée reproductions?

The contemporary giclée has become a valuable addition to the fine art world. "Giclée" is a French term, which means to spray ink. The pronunciation of giclée is "zhee-clay."

Giclée have a higher resolution than offset lithographs and the dynamic color range is greater than that of a serigraph. Giclée are created by a method of printing in which the image is scanned and digitally enhanced on a computer to match the original fine art. The image is then sent to a high-resolution inkjet printer, which sprays millions of microscopic droplets to create an image with smooth tonal gradation. These unique jets are able to vary the width of the ink stream to as small as 1/100th the width of human hair and this is generally regarded by the art industry as the highest quality reproduction available.

The entire process in the creation of the fine art giclée is an artistic endeavor within itself, requiring a great deal of patience and skill. A professional quality giclée starts with a high-resolution digital photograph, which is then painstakingly color matched to the original artwork.

Art Evolution employs experts in the field of scanning, color matching and printing on high quality canvas, thereby creating an exquisite product that does not need to be framed under glass.

Today, artworks reproduced using the giclée process are of such high quality that they can be found on display at museums around the world, including The Louvre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim.

Do you offer hand embellishment or mixed-medium artworks?

At Art Evolution we offer hand embellishment to most reproductions. Our professionally trained in-house artists are highly skilled in applying paint, gel and varnish. The result is a true "mixed medium artwork" which in many cases looks almost identical to the original artwork at a fraction of the cost.
