Fine Art Prints

Monday, June 11th, 2012

Fine art prints have several benefits over original artwork and cost is just the beginning. Depending on the size of the painting and the artist, a piece of fine art can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to several million. At that point you’re more likely to be making an investment than giving a gift. Another problem with original fine art is the preservation and care taking that is involved. Light, dust, fingerprints and moisture can all combine to wear down the colors of a painting and if you simply hang a fine art piece on a wall expect it to deteriorate quickly.

With fine art print reproductions you save yourself time and money. First, fine art prints are a fraction of what the original piece costs. Because of this you can choose to have a single print made or have dozens printed for greeting cards and gifts. Second, art reproductions can be transferred to a number of high quality paper stocks that are more durable than canvas including archival enhanced card stock and 100% cotton rag velvet paper. Using museum quality archival card stock and paper will give you the strongest backing you can have for a fine art reproduction and then you can choose options for preserving the artwork even more.

One option for high quality fine art reproduction is to use a process known as Giclee. Giclee is a French word that means “to spray” and the Giclee process involves generating images from high resolution digital scans and printing with archival quality inks onto various card stocks and papers. The Giclee process can be used for both fine art reproductions and photographs.

Another way to preserve an art print is to have it professionally matted, mounted and framed behind solid glass. Not only does the frame keep the card stock or paper from curling and tearing but the solid glass display plate will protect the artwork from dust, light, fingerprints and other hazards that can easily damage the print.

Fine Art

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

Art can be rightly described as the “expression of the appealing according to aesthetic principles”. The word ‘fine’ attached with ‘art’ does no wonders to denote the remarkable quality, but it redefines the purity in the institution of art! Over the years of its study and experimentation, fine arts has been personified as ‘visual art forms’ that include painting, sculpture, architecture and print making. This implies, rightly, that this discipline tends to exclude art forms classified as craft-work or applied art (example, textiles). A synonym for what we describe herein can be ‘visual art’.

Fine arts seeks no age, it only breeds a thought that needs a vent. A child learning to paint does not care about what others might say about what he paints, such is the essence of fine arts. A person of any age or sex or religion can indulge into the extravaganza of feelings and then find a new way, into self exploration, who knows that simple mixing of colors might give him the fame of a lifetime, or even better if the palette can satisfy the excited soul!!!

Fine art is further categorized into Architecture, Ceramics, Dance, Drawing, Film, Fine art photography, Furniture, Intermedia (interdisciplinary, traditionally referred to as Fine Art Media), Literature, Music & Opera, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textiles and Theatre. Classifying art does not mean that unbreakable walls have been created around it, suffocating it to fatality. Categorizing is only done so as to create tables for each one of these because rapidly multiplying contributions in them.

The idea of fine art is expression, whatever form, whichever medium, whoever artist!! It underlines the fact the every creation is a masterpiece, every creator is an aficionado, and every medium is the most apt one!

So, let’s be the aficionado and create a masterpiece that reflects our soul and its comprehension!

Fine art can be taken up like a religion, where each day, you make your contribution by offering something to your God, good or bad, you do not know, but it is the best that you can offer, so offer it!
