The Difference with Third Adventure
utilizes a Print Master whose skill, talent and
experience preserves the tonalities, textures and hues
of each and every unique Giclée image. And, to better
capture the real-life view of the subject matter, he
never uses software to enhance or edit an image. This
preserves the integrity of the subject matter.
Only 25 limited editions are created of each photograph
which provides the purchaser or exhibitor with a high
value piece. After the limit is reached, the photograph
is retired and each purchaser or exhibitor is notified
of the retirement.
Experience Giclée print photography at its finest with
technologies allow artists to develop unique and exciting
ways of creating art. Such is the story behind Giclée
prints, also known as canvas paintings. A Giclée is a
digital print that is an exact copy of a work of art such as
a photograph, painting or drawing. This art work is
reproduced using an ink jet printer, often on such mediums
as canvas, silk or paper.
In the late 1980s, IRIS printers were the industry standard
when it came to pre-press proofing. These printers, also
known as ink jets, used a method of spraying various colors
of ink onto paper in order to reproduce art work. The proofs
that were created could be used to check colors and acquire
client approval before a printer started his final print
A number of artists began to recognize the qualities unique
to these digital prints and to use them in their own
artwork. In an attempt to find a name to describe this new
medium, it was decided that such terms as “computer
generated”, “ink jet” and “digital” were far too mundane for
such a creative process. In 1991, Jack Duggane coined the
term Giclée, pronounced (zhee-clay), as an appropriately
artistic term to describe the process of reproducing
photographs and paintings on to canvas and other mediums.
California photographer, Richard Williams, demonstrates his
expertise in the Giclée technique with his impressive
collection of Northern California landscapes first captured
on film and expertly transferred onto canvas prints.
