Discover our exclusive collection of historical giclee prints

In addition to giclee prints of our major historical artists John James Audubon, John Gould, Daniel Giraud Elliot and Robert Thornton, we also have giclee prints of famous artists such as Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Karl Bodmer, Maria Sibylla Merian and many more. 

The artists were fascinated by nature. They traveled the world to paint birds, flowers, butterflies and mammals. Some artists were particularly interested in native Americans and the landscapes they lived in, or in architecture.  

Most artists were explorers and traveled widely, driven to show the world their discoveries. 

And like these artists, we also want you to experience the joy of owning beautiful works of art.

The making of a facsimile giclee print

1. Digitalization

Re-Art uses a Cruse Fine Art Scanner. This scanning camera is state of the art when it comes to digitalization of originals. The major museums in the world use these high quality fine art scanners.

2. Retouching

Small brown patches of acidification in the paper frequently appear. These are expertly digitally retouched, while maintaining the characteristics of the original.

3. Proofing

In the proofing phase the eye and expertise of the color lithographer is absolutely essential. His knowledge and skill ensures that the color of the facsimile is as close as possible to that of the original.

4. Printing

Printing the facsimile by Re Art Heritage Prints

We use Epson printers because the Piezo print technique is the only one which can actually squirt 2880 ink drops per inch on paper, whereby the facsimile prints are exceptionally sharp and detailed.
