What is a giclée?


Prefering a Dutch translation?

All of my oil paintings are also available as giclée

Giclée comes from the French word 'gicler' and means spurt or squirt. Using this technique means that several layers of high quality ink are applied on art print paper or canvas.
The giclée art print is a new and contemporary way of printing, meeting the highest requirements of artists and art collectors with respect to graphics. Because of this, the quality of giclée art printing is regarded to be equal to the more common, traditional graphic techniques like etching, serigraphy and stone lithography.
Several museums in the US and Europe exhibit Giclée fine art prints instead of the original art work, proving giclée art printing to be real high quality workmanship.

A limited edition Giclée meets the following requirements

  • The final Giclée proof has been created in close collaboration with, and has been approved by the artist
  • Each Giclée art print has been signed and numbered by the artist
