What is a Giclée?

"Giclée" (pronounced gee-CLAY or zhee-KLAY) is a French word meaning "to spray". The giclée process is a form of copying that uses archival inks which resist fading and is usually printed on canvas. Because the original is scanned in a high-resolution digital process, this technique produces a result that very accurately represents the details of the original painting. The copy can be enhanced by the artist with paint on certain details to bring dimensionality and originality back into the copy.
