Limited Edition Art Pieces
      "Rare Lithographs"

 

 

Do limited edition prints always
go up in value?

No, but they often do. When more people want a print than there are copies on the market, then the
demand pushes up the price. Some prints increase in value once the edition has sold out, so the size of
edition, especially in relation to an artist's popularity, is important.
Sometimes an artist’s work increases in value when the artist dies, because there will be no new works
from that artist but that will depend on the artist's reputation. An artist’s work may be particularly
collectable during a certain period and then go out of fashion, with prices dropping accordingly;
the art market is governed by taste and is fickle and hard to predict.

One look at his exquisite rich, textured canvases and you understand why Suljakov's work is so highly sought after. Suljakov, born in the cultural center of Moscow in 1960, comes from a well-known intellectual family with many generations of artists and writers. His parents gave him an excellent home education, which included painting by the age of seven. He continued with Russia's most rigid and traditional art education and from the age of twelve to twenty, he perfected his style of technically difficult artwork. He studied at the Moscow First Art School and served apprenticeships at the Moscow Graphic Art Committee and the Moscow Art Group. In 1990, Suljakov left Russia like many other artists had done, because they were asked to tie their art to politics. He then spent a year in New York City with a group of other artists from his native Russia, working as a commercial artist. When asked how he feels about the United States, Suljakov emphatically states, "I came to America when the time was right, when I had enough experience to express my art and thought on canvas."

Artist: Guillaume Azoulay 
********** This is a Limited Edition, hand signed Giclee********

What is a Giclee?
A giclee (zhee-CLAY) is an individually produced, high-resolution reproduction done on a special large format printer. Giclees are produced directly from a digital file from scans of existing artwork. Since many artists now produce only digital art, there is no 'original' that can be hung on a wall. Giclees solve that problem, while creating a whole new vibrant medium for art. Giclees can be printed on any number of media, from canvas to watercolor paper to transparent acetates. Giclees are superior to traditional lithography in several ways. The colors are brighter, last longer, and are so high-resolution that they are virtually continuous tone, rather than tiny dots.

Retail Value:  $6,500.00 unframed.

Sell Price:  $4,500.00

Biography:

Barbara McCann creates scenes that the viewer feels he or she can walk right into. Her use of the palette knife adds a textural level to her images, which contributes to the overall impression of liveliness. This heavy impasto technique imbues objects and figures with an air of solidity and dimension. It is a technique well-suited to her impressionistic style. Barbara’s love of light, use of rich, saturated color, and application of heavily textured paints mark her as as an heir to the impressionists’ ideals – to create works that concentrate on the feelings a scene evokes rather than the accurate reproduction of “reality.” Light, shadow, color, texture, and perspective are the fundamental elements Barbara uses to create visions of warmth and wonder, full of life and light.

Barbara McCann was born and raised in western Pennsylvania. She began her artistic endeavors with drawing as a child, and then with painting in her teenage years. At the age of 18, she took a four-year apprenticeship in architectural illustration and design, which set the stage for a career in art. McCann moved to Florida in 1973, and for the next 20 years ran her own architectural illustration and design studio. Barbara's career and interests in illustrative art and fine art dovetailed.

Biography:
Jiang was born in 1938, in Ningbo, Zhejiiang Province, in China. Even as a child he displayed a great love and talent for painting and drawing, and early on he knew the course his life would take.  In 1959, in a highly competitive exam he won admission to the prestigious Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. From 1962-64 he studied with the famous Chinese artist Huang Yong-yu, who first exposed him to the paintings from the Dunguang caves. In 1964 he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree. This was the last class to graduate before the cultural revolution. Upon graduation in 1964,  Jiang and a small number of other artists volunteered to go down to the Yunnan province. This turned out to be a blessing.

His new home allowed his talents to burst forth. Jiang's talent was so obvious that from 1966-73 the Chinese Government assigned him to produce "Socialist Realism" propaganda posters and sculptures during the Cultural Revolution. He even painted the famous large red-faced poster of Chairman Mao. The natural beauty of the province inspired him. With two other artists, He Neng and Liu Shaohui, Jiang secretly formed the nucleus of what was first called the "Heavy Colorist" school and is now known as the" Yunnan School began.

Biography:
Richard Zu Ming Ho is a beloved figurative impressionist whose work is known for its beauty and lyrical style. Greatly influenced by such French masters as Degas, Manet and Renoir, as well as American masters Sargent and Whistler, Ho has created his own style some say is “as fine as a poem, not merely a picture.”

Richard Ho was born in China in 1949. By his teens he was already accomplished in drawing, watercolor, still life, landscape, calligraphy, traditional Chinese painting, and figure painting in the “western” style. But it was this last nod toward western art that landed Ho in a forced labor camp. For the next ten years the communist regime tried to break Ho’s spirit by depriving him of his art. But he kept his dream alive by visualizing paintings and memorizing images and hoping that, someday, he would be able to put them on canvas or paper.

Ho’s dream was realized in 1987 when he immigrated to the United States. Free to follow his talent, he began creating pieces rich with meaning and elegance. Today he combines a gentle touch with vivid color to produce works that uniquely celebrate the grace of the human body and the intimacy of our relationship with nature and the universe.

Her style is strongly reminiscent of George Innes in its quiet feeling of warmth and space.

Tomao has had exhibitions in Long Beach, Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, San Diego, San Francisco, Palm Desert, Portland, Vancouver, New Orleans and Palm Beach.

Biography:
The artist may be more familiar to you as an actor. For fifteen years he has sold you such products as Mennen, Speedstick, Coke, Certs, and Head and Shoulders to name just a few of the over fifty TV commercials he's done. Theatrically he has starred as a series regular in "Welcome Back Kotter" as the southern sweathog 'Beau' and co-starred with Debbie Reynolds on the ABC show "Aloha Paradise". He spent the year of 1987 playing the role of David Reed as part of the original cast on the CBS daytime soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful". It was after this role that Stephen set his priorities toward business and finally to pursue his love of art.

Stephen enjoyed acting but found painting much more creatively satisfying and explains, "...the feeling of being totally free to create as an artist is exciting to me. In acting a large part of the creative process had taken place by the time I was involved. The writer, director, and producer had already made many decisions about the character I would play. In contrast, painting gives me complete control. I may race along in a painting and have a disaster on my hands or something I'm proud of...but, I make the choices and accept the consequences good or bad. That's freedom...it's precious and the most fulfilling part of being an artist to me."

Lindsay Dawson is primarily known for his colorful impressionistic paintings of women and children in beach and garden settings, and romantic bygone era scenes. Dawson's paintings have a unique style (at times almost naďve) that tend to have a simple innocence that transports the viewer into another world, often that of childhood memories.
Today, his limited-edition serigraphs, prints and originals are sought after by major collectors everywhere. As his recognition grows, he continues to perfect his style of ‘new impressionism.’

A "New Impressionist" schooled under the tutelage of John Asaro and Dan McCaw at Pasadena’s famed Art Center, Dawson’s work transcends Impressionism into a modern era with paintings that are not only beautiful explorations of light but recall intimate moments of childhood. His conveyance of relationships between children and especially fathers and children renders his work as romanticisized snapshots of the most joyous moments of contemporary life.
