About this Artwork
Giclée + Other Art Terms
Giclée: From the French verb gicler, meaning, “to spray.” It is pronounced “zhee-clay”. The giclée process uses an incredibly accurate computer-controlled jet to apply ink to watercolor paper, canvas or etching paper. These unique jets are able to vary the width of the ink stream to as small as 1/100th the width of human hair. Giclées have a higher resolution than offset lithographs and the dynamic color range is greater than serigraph. Giclée reproductions are used to produce museum quality, fine art reproductions. In the art world it is generally regarded as the highest quality reproduction available.
Following an exhausting 8 year legal battle which resulted in a landmark court decision that was entered into Canadian law, the Toller Cranston estate has released the remaining paintings from the estate.
For the first time in a decade, the largest Toller Cranston artwork collection has been acquired by Art Evolution. Over 100 paintings are available for your consideration. Whether purchasing for investment or to simply own a piece of Canadian history, these paintings inspire and delight.
