What is a Giclee?
A Giclee (pronounced
Zhee-Clay) is a very high end digitally produced archival
quality print. Giclees are printed on archival substrates,
such as Arches Cold Press watercolor papers, Somerset
watercolor papers or specially prepared canvases, with
archival, light fast inks, at a very high resolution.
Depending on the medium of the original work, giclees
are printed on paper or canvas. Watercolor paintings
render very well on the watercolor papers, and oil paintings
printed as canvas giclees have the rich tonal quality
of original oil paintings. Canvas giclees are also coated
with a special finishing media to protect the surface.
Canvas giclees are stretched and framed as one would
display an original oil painting. Watercolor giclees
are typically framed behind glass, as one would do with
an original watercolor painting.
and reproduce the nuance and splendor of the original
work of art. Giclees are now found in MoMA and The Louvre.
Giclees are used when the original painting is too fragile
for exhibition. Giclees render very closely to the original
work of art.
