Truly works of art in their own right, Giclee printing is a new medium for artists and collectors. Giclée prints are in museum, gallery and private collections throughout the world.
Original work is digitally scanned to make master files between 500 to 1200 MB. The reproductions capture brush stroke and fine detail as well as the weave in canvas and watermarks in paper.
The musician Graham Nash, who is also an accomplished photographer, funded the original technology. In 1991 the name Giclée was created because fine art collectors preferred terms that did not include “digital” and “computer”. Today Giclée describes a high quality, digitally produced, fine art print.
Giclée pieces are available in sizes proportional to the original.
