I Want One Of Those
There is, unfortunately, only one original when it comes to buying an artwork that you would love to own. Whatever the circumstances, buying a print may be the best affordable way to start your own collection. It could also be that you would like the painting to be larger, or smaller, to hang where you intend to display it.
Is It Really Worth Anything?
Buying prints can be a great way to acquire pieces by a particular artist at an affordable price, but they can also serve as a great addition to an all-around collection that encompasses an entire body of work by a particular artist (paintings, drawings and prints alike). Since they cost only a fraction of the price of a painting or a photograph, prints are also a great way for new art collectors to kick off their collection.
Size Is Important
This smaller number of prints made available by the artist often means that limited edition prints are significantly more expensive to purchase than open edition prints and are more valuable. Limited edition prints are often signed and numbered by the artist, which helps to ensure authenticity. Prints are often seen as mass-produced copies of artworks that are just not that valuable or worth investing in. But nothing can be further from the truth. Prints can be just as valuable as any other artwork and certain prints are known to reach seven or eight-figure prices at auctions.
Of all the paintings displayed in the gallery, only 400 of each set will be made available for sale worldwide. These are individually numbered and signed by the artist to guarantee authenticity and to show which one of the set you own.
