Buying Photographic Prints
The J. Rheingold Gallery represents some of the greatest fine art music photo journalists. The photographs offered by our gallery are printed by our master printer as Giclee prints or by the photographers preferred lab. Each photograph is signed by the photographer or has a certificate of authenticity, so the collector can be assured of the image’s authenticity.
Our primary papers are Fine Art Photo Rag (Matte) and Fine Art Baryta (Glossy).
The J. Rheingold Gallery takes custom orders if you are interested in other printing methods. As a basic glossary, we have put together some descriptions of the most common terms used in association with fine art prints.
This is our primary printing method for most images. The French word "giclée" is a feminine noun that means a spray or a spurt of liquid. The word may have been derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt." The term "giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
Numerous examples of giclee prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art and the Chelsea Galleries.
Platinum paper is created by hand coating an acid-free paper with liquid platinum. The image is then contact printed onto the paper, creating a print that is the same size as the negative. The image becomes embedded in the paper, creating a three-dimensional depth specific to platinum prints. The delicate, rich platinum tones range from warm black, to reddish brown, to expanded mid-tone grays that are unobtainable in silver prints. Over the years, the only obstacle to widespread enjoyment of platinum has been lack of access to this rare process. At the outbreak of World War I, platinum abruptly could no longer be obtained. What little platinum was available went into strategic needs of the war. This shortage continued until the end of World War II. However, few photographers immediately resumed the use of platinum, largely because commercially made, platinum-coated paper was unavailable. Platinum prints are not only exceptionally beautiful, they are among the most permanent objects invented by human beings. The platinum metals are more stable than gold.
Silver Gelatin Printing
The most widely used black-and-white printing process was introduced in the late 1880s. It employs papers coated with a gelatin emulsion of light-sensitive silver halide. The print is produced by exposing a negative onto the paper, either by contact-printing or through an enlarger. The print is then chemically processed, fixed, and dried. Gelatin silver prints may be toned using a variety of compounds or minerals to create a wide range of subtle hues.
A digital process in which the original photographic negative or print is scanned into a computer, then printed to an Iris inkjet printer. The prints can be produced on a variety of artist's papers. The paper is wrapped around the printer's drum, which rotates at a high speed while a set of nozzles distributes inks of the four process colors—cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Iris technology was first developed as a proofing process by commercial offset printers.
