This differs from commercial print works in that they employ archival quality ink, with a lifetime of twenty five years. The reproductions are printed on a larger size scale and printer, in small batches and on occasions, singly. This is in comparison to the commercial prints, which are printed in batches, composing of thousands of images.
Reproductions of Paintings
When considering the options related to the reproduction of paintings, they are obtainable from the décor section of a departmental store, in a good quality photographic paper, with a lifetime of between five to ten years, with appropriate storage.
For a more original reproduction of a favored painting, which is relatively inexpensive, a replica is available by using the skills of another artist. Talented students, who are dedicated to the style of a certain renowned artist, practice by making reproductions. However, it must be realized that the result will depend on the individual talent and perceptions of the painter making the reproduction.
This type of Van Gogh Reproductions and Paintings can be discovered by online from globalwhoesaleart.com . It could be considered an innovative and skilled art media in its own right, requiring considerable patience, knowledge of art and the original painter's style and significant ability. Various students and some skilled painters, with the desire to develop their skills, task themselves with producing replicated paintings. This hones their personal capability and enables the gaining of knowledge from the original creators of the works. Although this type of reproduction can be appreciated as representing the original art work, it is not in any respect, portrayed as a substitute for the original.
Vincent Willem van Gogh started drawing as a child and completed many of his well recognized works during the last two years of his life. The Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, Holland, is a tribute to him and an inspiration to many artists today.
