|Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Limited Edition Print?
A Limited Edition is an edition of identical prints numbered sequentially and individually signed by the artist, having a stated limit to the number in the edition. Our edition sizes can vary dramatically, normally ranging from 750 to 1150. A limited edition print is produced using museum quality inks and pH neutral (acid-free) paper to preserve the life of the print and to prevent discoloration. All limited edition prints are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
What is an Artist's Proof?
Artist's Proofs are a special subset of the regular limited edition, traditionally totaling about 10% of the regular edition. Although they are virtually identical to the regular edition, Artist's Proofs are all signed by the artist and numbered consecutively with Roman numerals, for example, AP VIII/XXV (meaning 8 out of 25 prints). Since 2002, all Artist's Proofs of the paper edition have Mort KŁnstler's signature embossed in the right hand margin. Because of their smaller editions, Artist's Proofs are more rare and therefore, higher priced.
What is a Giclée?
A Giclťe print is created with digital printers using tiny ink jets that spray microscopic ink droplets onto a sheet of canvas, creating a lush, vibrant and textured art print that has the look of an original painting.
What is the Masterpiece Collection?
The Masterpiece Collection is an extraordinary collection of Mort KŁnstler's most treasured and timeless images, selected by the artist himself. This unsurpassed art is in a prestigious exhibition size format designed for display as the centerpiece décor in any fine home or office.
