Good day!

Understanding Giclee Prints for present-day home wall decor.

Giclee (zhee-klay) - The French word "giclee" is a feminine word that means a spray of liquid. The word may have been borrowed from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt".

Images are developed from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas and photo-base paper.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gicl%C3%A9e - Giclee is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers. The name basically applied to fine art prints created on Iris printers in a process made-up in the late 1980s but has since come to mean any inkjet print. It is often used by print shops to describe high quality printing.

Giclee prints are advantageous to artists who do not find it appropriate to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art as needed.

Numerous examples of giclee prints can be found in New York City at the http://www.metmuseum.org/ - Metropolitan Museum, the http://www.metmuseum.org/ - Museum of Modern Art and the http://chelseagallerymap.com/ - Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctions of giclee prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Leibovitz, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $22,800 for Wolfgang Tillmans.
