What is a Giclée?

Pronounced “gee-clay”

Giclée is a French word meaning “the spraying of ink.” A realistic reproduction of Evelyn’s painting is made by first taking a high-resolution digital photograph of her original painting and storing that data in a digital file on a computer that is connected to the source of archival inks that accurately match the colors of the painting. After Evelyn has approved the accuracy of the proof, the archival ink is mixed and directly sprayed onto artist-quality canvas. A final clear coating is then applied to protect the artwork from moisture and UV rays, ensuring the collector of the highest quality reproduction and permanent colors.
