Understanding Giclee Prints
Understanding Giclee Prints for present-day home wall decor.
Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclee" is a feminine noun that means a spray of liquid. The word may have been borrowed from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt".
Images are developed from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas and photo-base paper.
Giclee is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process made-up in the late 1980s but has since come to mean any inkjet print. It is often used by artists to suggest high quality printing.
Giclee prints are helpful to artists who do not find it feasible to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art on-demand.
Numerous examples of giclee prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art and the Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctions of giclee prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Leibovitz, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $22,800 for Wolfgang Tillmans.
Nowadays you can order authentic Giclee wall art print at Etsy shops.
