West Gate, Warwick
PRINT TYPE: SECONDARY MARKET
A Signed Limited Edition Print of West Gate, Warwick. Painted by E R Sturgeon. Published 1977 - 685 copies. This print is only available via the secondary market and is very difficult to source.
We have just one good copy of this print left - the colour is as good as when it was published over 40 years ago. This print is in very good condition - but not perfect. There are some slight marks in the border, and it has been previously mounted so there are some tape marks on the back. Neither of these imperfections will show once it is mounted and framed. This is a very rare opportunity to own the last one of these popular prints.
Set of prints numbered/coded in succession. The total number of prints is fixed or “limited”. The artist supervises the printing process whenever possible and would also sign the print.
A series of prints or objects in an art edition that has an unlimited number of copies. The image may be used in various forms e.g. calendars, books, cards etc.
OFFSET LITHOGRAPHY PRINTINGMost of the earlier prints by E R Sturgeon were published using this method This printing technique uses a process in which images are transferred on to a metal surface that has been chemically sensitized so that ink sticks only to the design areas, and is repelled by the non-image areas. Plates are made for laying down the four colours of yellow, red, blue and black with each colour being printed separately. This method is very well adapted to colour printing but fairly large numbers have to be produced in order to be cost effective. A litho print is therefore only generally produced in one size.
GICLEE PRINTINGThis is the latest method of printing within the industry - offering an extremely high quality of reproduction with a lot of versatility. It is a computerised reproduction technique in which the image is generated from a digital file and printed by a special ink jet printer. Giclee printing offers the highest degree of accuracy and richness of colour. The ink and paper quality used are both of a very high standard. Giclee prints can quite easily be produced in different sizes and stocked according to demand.
DIGITAL PRINTINGThe rise of Digital Print over the last ten years has changed the printing industry. Using an HP Indigo Press it is economically viable to print short runs giving more versatility. It is almost impossible to tell the difference between traditional Litho products. This method of printing is used for our cards, calendars and gift range prints
