Advantages of printed graphics
Printed graphics are a well-known way to replicate artistic images. Among the features of printed graphics, you can note the ability to quickly respond to important and current events, the availability and receipt of a large circulation, a number of consecutive works to demonstrate a single plot idea.
Printed graphics are cheaper and more accessible than painting. Therefore, in the middle ages, the market for printed graphics in Europe began to flourish due to the spread of paper and the invention of the first printing presses.
How do I distinguish an original from a fake?
When determining the value of the work, it is important to establish the name of the author, the artistic rarity of the work of art, and the time of its creation. Due to counterfeits, there are problems with the authenticity of printed graphics. Among them, you can note the difficulty or inability to read the author’s handwriting due to late restoration work, poor preservation of works or lack of study of the work of some authors, replacement of originals with copies or works of other less well-known authors.
The printed graphics market in Russia also has its own difficulties. These include high customs duties on the import of high-quality materials, wear and tear of equipment, and lack of qualified personnel.
Modern technologies allow you to get a large number of copies while maintaining the quality compared to old techniques. However, the uniqueness and value of printed graphics as a separate art form is determined by the size of the circulation and the order of the impression. At the same time, printed graphics are popular among famous artists and determine the important place of printed graphics in European art culture.
