Frequently asked questions

What is meant by a limited edition giclee?


In our case, this is a giclee (i.e., print on canvas) that will be produced a limited number of times from an original painting. Once the limit has been reached, no more limited edition giclees will be produced. The giclees will be signed by the artist (Kathy Winkler) and will be numbered in the form x/y, where "y" is the limit associated with the image and "x" is the number of the giclee in the series of "y" giclees. The maximum number of Limited Edition Giclees for any one image will be 100.




What is a Giclee? (pronounced zhee-clay)


Derived from Merriam Webster: A process by which high-quality prints are produced uding an ink-jet printer; a process that involves squirting microscopic dots of ink onto archival paper or canvas. The ink is absorbed, giving the piece a look very close to the original. The name is derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning to squirt, or more accurately, in this case, applying an extremely fine spray of many different sized droplets. The application of the inks in this way is so fine that there are no discernible dots or droplets on the final print.

All giclees will be printed on canvas, will be 1.5" deep, and will be ready-to-hang.
