Limited Edition Lithograph - click here to find out more.
Hand-pulled lithography is a time-honoured means of producing high quality fine art reproductions. Once the artist has painted the original work of art, skilled artisans create individual printing plates for each colour represented in the piece. Depending on the number of colours, there can be dozens or even hundreds of plates required.
Each plate depicts only that part of the piece which is to receive that colour. Paint is applied by hand to the first plate, and it is pressed onto the paper with the use of historic presses dating back to the late 1800’s. Once the first colour has dried, the second plate is painted and applied. This painstaking process continues until all colours and all parts of the original image have been recreated.
Hand-pulled lithographs are created on high quality acid-free rag paper, and are generally done in limited editions of no more than 750 pieces. They are often signed by the artist.
The quality and artistic heritage of hand-pulled lithographs makes them central to many fine art collections.
What is Conservation Glass?
Standard glass is suitable for most artwork in most homes. As ambient (indirect) sunlight and artificial light do not present a fading risk, most people do not require special UV filtering glass.
If you have a lot of direct sunlight in your home, you may want to upgrade your artwork purchase to conservation glass. Conservation glass filters out 97% of harmful UV rays and will prevent fading of signatures and artwork, as well as yellowing of paper.
The best thing to do is avoid hanging any art or photographs in direct sunlight. If you can't avoid direct sunlight, conservation glass is well worth the additional cost.
