Discover our exclusive collection of historical giclee prints
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.
Owning a complete set from the artist
It is possible to own a complete set of prints to add to your collection.
Our high-quality historic giclée prints are identical to the original. All sets are printed with a maximum of 50 set-copies, signed and numerd and stamped with a blind embossing.
We use age resistant white etching paper (with a weight of 270 gr/m2); archival ink which resists fading for over 100 years. Moreover we can safely say that our giclée’s are printed in the highest possible resolution.
The complete sets vary in number and size, but a complete set will always include:
- 1 or more title pages.
- 1 or more content pages.
- A complete set of prints.
- A certificate of authenticity.
- A handcrafted folder with gold lettering, or a handcrafted Solander Box with gold lettering.
The making of a facsimile giclee print
Small brown patches of acidification in the paper frequently appear. These are expertly digitally retouched, while maintaining the characteristics of the original.
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.
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.
