A reproduction (pronounced "zhee-klay") is the highest quality print available today. The word Giclée is French for “fine spray”. The Giclee print conotates an elevation in printmaking technology.
The reproduction process begins with a high-resolution scan of the original oil painting and then printed on a special Giclée printer with archival quality inks. The Giclée is printed with light-fast pigmented inks onto traditional canvas giving the feel, texture and look of an original work of art.
The continuous tone of the Giclée process produces thousands of shades of rich color, creating a blend of art and technology that achieves the intention of the artist more closely than any other means currently available. As a result, the observer views a Fine Art image as vibrant as the original painting.
