The term "giclee" is a French word meaning 'spray of liquid', and refers to a high quality inkjet printing process that was developed in the early 1990's. Most of the fine art giclees in our gallery were produced when the original painting was sent to a professional specialist printer, where the artwork was photographed using a super-high resolution camera. The image was then printed on canvas using a large-format specialty 8- or 12-color inkjet printer.
The advantages of buying a giclee include:
Accuracy of reproduction is very high, resulting in colors that are true to the original work.
Giclees are usually available in various sizes other than that of the original work.
A giclee is much less expensive than an original work.
