A Side Note on the Art Gallery Works - Canvas/Oil paintings made by these artists are one of a kind and are very premium priced - a few thousand dollars and upward, some go upto a couple million dollars worth. However, for many artists you can get a printed version known as serigraph.
"Serigraphs actually involve recreating the original artwork by hand. The serigrapher prints each individual color of the original, one color at a time, resulting in an exacting hand created reproduction."
Depending on the artist and the demand a few hundred to a few thousands , but a limited edition serigraph prints are created, and may often carry the Painters DNA keeping it original and limited editions. These serigraphs are relatively affordable versions for art collectors. A great place to purchase these serigraph prints would be art auctions, specially on cruise lines.
