Giclée Prints

Fine art Giclée prints of images from THE IMMORTALS are now available on Hahnemule German Etching, a mould-made etching paper, or on artist canvas.

The Giclée (zee-clay) process was developed for the purpose of creating true art prints. These prints are uniquely dissimilar from traditional offset lithographs.

Each print is produced individually. Images of original paintings are digitally captured, preserving detail and fidelity of color with greater efficiency and accuracy than ever before. The high-tech digital press that creates the print does not use “dots” to form the image. Rather, it yields an image that is continuous in tone.

The Giclée print has archival qualities that are vastly superior to offset prints. The special ink set employed has been tested to last over 200 years under normal viewing conditions. Because of the careful imaging process, deep shadow detail is not sacrificed and the images are produced with an extended range of color. And, the process affords the artist to once again use fine, hand-moulded art papers for printing. As a result, Giclée prints have greatly elevated aesthetic and purposeful qualities.

Numerous examples of Giclée prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctions of Giclée prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Leibowitz, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $22,000 for WofgangTilmans (April 23/24 2004, Photographs, New York, Phillips de Pury & Company.)

Each Giclée listed below is an open edition, that is they will be hand-signed by the artist, but not numbered, though only 10 or 15 will be made of each edition.
