steffichfineart and Michael Hames


first annual historic print exhibition

August 22 to September 11, 2008

What, exactly, is an original print? This question frequently causes confusion and sparks debate amongst present-day art lovers, collectors, dealers, and even artists themselves.  Commercial art reproductions based on photographic processes have been around for well over a century. The most common publishing method, offset lithography, has been joined recently by giclee—digitally reproduced images printed with inkjet—and these methods are well suited to posters, book illustration and advertising art.  The art market has been flooded in the last thirty years or so, with costly yet ultimately worthless reproductions posing as limited edition prints.                      Click here for full essay....
