Lot 0063J Details

Description
Raphael - The Three Graces - Giclée On Canvas - 35 1/4 X 36 In.~~A giclée print falls between serigraph and lithograph in quality. Although they can be made on paper, Giclees on canvas may be framed as oil paintings, without glass. A clear coating is applied to protect from fingerprints and water droplets. The coating does not improve the permanence of the image. Another coating is applied to minimize the effects of ultraviolet light. Under circumstances similar to home and office conditions, tests have demonstrated that Giclées can last as long as 32-36 years before noticeable fading begins. It's important to note that all colors fade. Depending on the composition of the paints, many original watercolors will fade faster. The French word "giclée" (jhee'clay, from French verb gicler - to squirt) "Many Museums have mounted exhibitions or purchased Giclées for their permanent collections. These include The Metropolitan Museum (New York), the Guggenheim (New York), the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Boston), the Philadelphia Museum, the Butler Institute (Youngstown, OH), the Corcoran (DC), the National Gallery for Women in the Arts (DC), the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts (DC), the Walker Art Center, the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, the New York Public Library Print Collection, the High Museum (Atlanta), the California Museum of Photography, the National Museum of Mexico and the San Jose Museum, among others.
