What is a Giclee Fine Art Print?
Giclee fine art print refers to a machine-made reproduction using the
latest and most sophisticated ink-jet technology. The name comes from
the French word GICLEE (pronounced Zhee-Clay) that means “spray". In
this printing method, the media (in our case the artists canvas) is
carried by a spinning roller while infinitely small pixels of rich,
vibrant archival inks are sprayed on it at a very high speed. This
renders an amazingly smooth and consistent image true to the original
painting, a superb quality fine art reproduction.
The Giclee is
quickly becoming the new standard in the art industry, and is widely
embraced for its astonishing quality by major museums, galleries,
publishers and artists. A Giclee Print is quite simply the closest
replication of an original artwork that is currently possible. All of
Richard Russell prints on canvas are hand-embellished to give the look
and feel of an original, which enhances the value.
How durable is a Giclee Print?
latest inks offer up to 70 years light-fastness and UV-resistance under
museum archival conditions. For even better permanence, we coat all our
canvas giclee prints with a layer of anti-fading UV protective clear satin
