What is a giclee? Comparing Lithograph to Giclee
WHAT IS A GICLEE’?
A giclee’ (zhee-CLAY) is an individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity reproduction of an original painting. Giclee’s are printed on canvas compared to the museum paper used in lithograph production. Giclee’s are superior in quality to traditional lithography in several ways.
The colors are brighter, last longer, and are so high-resolution that they are virtually continuous tone, rather than tiny dots.
The details are crisper.
The ink sprayed onto the canvas page is actually mixing the color on the page to create true shades and hues.
Giclee’s were originally developed as a proofing system for lithograph printing presses, but it became apparent that the presses were having a hard time delivering the quality and color of the giclee’ proofs. They evolved into the new darlings of the art world and are coveted by collectors.
THE GICLEE’ IS THE CLOSEST THING TO THE ORIGINAL ARTWORK THAT A COLLECTOR CAN FIND. GICLEE’S RETAIN THE HIGHEST ARTISTIC AND INVESTMENT VALUE- LONG AFTER AN ART PIECE HAS BEEN RETIRED FROM PRINT. Their fidelity and quality are desired by galleries worldwide.
THE REMARQUE: A remarque is a small, personalized drawing that Artist Doug West has added opposite his signature on the Gordie Howe Canvas Giclee' Print. Exclusive to this nine set edition of the Heroes of The Hall Gordie Howe Giclee. Each of the hand drawings represent great moments in Mr. Hockey's career-. Each remarque is one of a kind original scene, hand drawn by the artist.
The presence of a remarque substantially increases the print's value.
This remarque is an original drawing by the artist and placed in the lower left border of your print. This detailed finished drawing is personally and individually drawn for you by artist Doug West. Remarquing is only done on a select few prints of each edition. Below are some examples.
Besides enhancing the appearance and collectibility of your print, a remarque gives you the unique opportunity to own an original piece of work by the artist. Orders for remarqued Doug West prints are always subject to availability. Remember, the Maestro's remarques are drawn by hand...your order for a remarqued print requires a bit of time to fill, as there is always a backlog...please be patient!
