What does the word Giclée mean?
The contemporary giclée has become a valuable addition to the art world. "Giclée" is a French term, which means to spray ink. The pronunciation of giclée is “zhee-clay.”
Essentially a giclée is the reproduction an original 2 dimensional work of art using a highly specialized inkjet printer.
Giclée have a much higher resolution than offset lithographs and the dynamic color range is far greater than that of a serigraph. Giclée are produced using a high-resolution inkjet printer, which can spray ink as small as 1/100th the width of human hair, this process is generally regarded by the art industry as the highest quality reproduction available and in many cases are indistinguishable from the original artwork.
The entire process of producing a fine art giclée is an artistic endeavor within itself, requiring a great deal of patience and skill.
Giclee' dp not need to be framed under glass and is of such high quality that giclée reproductions can be found on display at museums around the world, including The Louvre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim.
High quality giclée is estimated to remain colorfast for 100 years or more. Giclée are a wonderful cost effective alternative and are often indistinguishable from the original painting.
