Frequently asked questions

1.1 What is a print?

An original print is an image that has been conceived by the artist as a print and executed solely as a print, usually in a numbered edition, and signed by the artist. Each print in the edition is an original, printed from a plate, stone, screen, block or other matrix created for that purpose. A reproduction (although often called a print) has no relationship whatsoever to an original print. It is a copy of a work of art conceived by the artist in another medium (painting, watercolour, etc.). The reproduction is usually made by photo-mechanical means. Numbering and signing a reproduction does not change its essence; it is still a reproduction of a drawing, painting, watercolour etc. It is not an original print.
