GICLEE PRINTING


The advanced quality of Giclee artwork reproduction makes it the top choice over older, inferior techniques. With almost total control over the final product, Giclee printing gives artists more freedom than ever before. Individual requirements can easily be accommodated for each client/buyer, including changes in size, color, what the image is printed on, and alterations within the image itself.
When printed on canvas, the print can be beautifully stretched, varnished, textured, or gallery wrapped – which is a very popular choice among artists recently. When printed on paper, a client/buyer has the choice of which type is used with the option of varnishing or deckling. All finished pieces resemble the original work so closely that they often look identical and are hard to distinguish from one another.
We gladly consult and educate each of our clients/buyers about the Giclee industry, fine art publishing, and copyright laws. Certificates of authenticity are supplied to our clients/buyers to ensure that their print is of the highest quality. We also help artists in putting their work out there and increasing sales by connecting them with galleries and by featuring their work in our own fine art Giclee gallery website.

  Frederic Remington

Frederic Remington Frederic Sackrider Remington (October 4, 1861 - December 26, 1909) was an American artist who specialized in the portrayal of the Old American West. He focused on the last quarter of the 19th century and images of the U.S. Cavalry, cowboys, and Indians. Along with being a painter, he was also an illustrator, a writer, and a sculptor.

Frederic Sackrider Remington was born in Canton, New York. He attended military schools during his youth where he took his first drawing lessons. When he got older he went off to attend the art school at Yale University. He was the only male during his freshman year. He took up boxing and football and showed more interest in the two sports rather than in formal art lessons. An illustration he did for the Yale student newspaper was his first published work. He left Yale in 1879 to be by the side of his sick father, who died a year later.
Living off of his inheritance, Remington decided he did not want to return to school. At the age of nineteen he headed out west and invested in cattle operations and sheep ranching that were very short lived. These lifestyles did not provide him with the luxuries that he was used to back home in the east. Remington was married in 1884. After more unsuccessful business ventures and a fall out in his marriage, he began to paint and draw diligently. He sold his work to locals and after some time, was experiencing enough success to see art as a full time profession. His new career gave him security with his inheritance gone now. He soon reunited with his wife and they moved to Brooklyn where he attended the Arts Students League of New York. With his Uncle Bill providing financial backing, Remington was able to pursue his career in art and support his wife.
At the end of the 19th century and the start of the 20th century, which is called the 'Golden Age' of illustration, Remington was the most famous and successful Western artist. He tended to steer clear of ethnographic realism that earlier Western artists used and had a naturalistic style, sometimes even impressionistic. He focused on the animals and people of the West much more so than he did the landscapes and backgrounds. He was one of the first artists to capture the true movement of the horse in motion.
