Discover The Best Art Prints in Sydney
For paintings and similar artworks, prints are sometimes reproductions of the original, and sold at a lower price. Prints of paintings can be limited editions, and some can even be signed by the artist.
When it comes to photography, the terminology is slightly different – for a photograph to be processed, it needs to be printed in some way. Vintage photography is generally taken from transparencies or negatives and produced in dark rooms, whereas modern photography tends to be digitally produced.
This means that if you are buying photography art prints in Sydney, there are a few different terms that are used (and these usually determine the value, too). Original prints are a series of prints that have been approved by the artist for production.
The least expensive is ‘open edition’. These are an ideal starting place for new collectors, as they are usually unsigned and therefore less valuable than limited edition. There is no indication of how many were printed.
‘Limited edition’ prints have a set number in a certain size, have a Certificate of Authority (COA) and signed by the artist or estate representative or perhaps unsigned but authenticated by the estate.
The most exclusive and therefore most valuable are the ‘Artist Proofs’ or AP. These are extremely limited editions where the prints might need to be adjusted through colour or exposure, for example. The value of these comes from the rarity – only 1-5 are produced usually.
At the Lyons Gallery, we work hard to source exclusive and rare works from our featured artists, and this means that through our network of trusted buyers and collectors we have a global reach – so we can find what you need.
