Margaret Chapman artwork is reproduced as Giclée prints after being captured from high resolution scans or photographs, proofed, colour graded, retouched and enhanced then printed digitally using extremely precise Canon printers, Canon archival-quality inks and acid-free art and photo quality Hahnemühle FineArt Rag Pearl papers.
Giclée printing is quickly being recognized by the world’s leading galleries and museums as the finest reproductions available to date.
The bright white of Hahnemühle FineArt Rag Pearl enables impressive contrasts and pictorial depth in black and white or colour photography. The special coating provides a pearl-finish. FineArt Rag Pearl is much whiter than other papers in its class and consequently blacks appear deeper than when printed on less capable paper stocks.
PLEASE NOTE: As these artworks are printed on demand please allow up to two weeks for your order to arrive.
Our printing company uses a 12-colour Canon giclée printer which produces incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets. Giclée prints render deep, saturated colours and have an exceptional quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends. The term ‘giclée’ is meant to be applied only to archival digital prints made with fine art paper or canvas.
Today, giclée prints have gained wide acceptance and legitimacy and are now shown in museums and galleries throughout the world. Numerous examples of giclée prints can for example be found in the New York Metropolitan Museum and in the Tate Galleries.
The giclée printing process is environmentally safe since the inks are water-based and the paper archival and acid-free. Even though we use long-life archival UV-safe pigmented inks supplied by Canon, a giclée print must be treated as fine art and like fine art, placed away from direct sunlight.
