Fine Art Editions

There are a number of collections within our Fine Art Section, which are all printed and published to the very highest quality:

Superior Editions

They are all numbered and accompanied by a certificate. They are printed using Rosenstiel's registered process called a Gouttelette®. The Gouttelette® process is based on digital technology, but has some quirks which are exclusive to Rosenstiel's and leads to an extraordinary quality. 

Gouttelette® prints have remarkable colour saturation and continuous tone characteristics. All Gouttelettes® are either produced on acid free calcium carbonate buffered archival watercolour paper with a distinct textured surface or on fine archival quality canvas, coated with a layer of acid free ink receptor.

On light-fastness, the ink and paper combinations generally used, meet the standards of both the Fine Art Trade Guild's blue wool scale and those of Wilhelm Imaging Research in America. Almost invariably we use Hahnemühle paper and we are a  Hahnemühle Certified Studio for fine art printing. Papers are chosen to complement the image. These are not limited editions, but each reproduction is accompanied by a certificate giving the background to the image, artist information and the prints and the certificates are numbered to match the most recent copy to be produced. The certificate is then signed by the master printer to confirm the quality.

Limited Editions

Limited Edition prints are produced on a number of different substrates and provide an affordable way to have a very special item for the collector. Each limited edition is individually quality checked and is accompanied by varying support material, including certificates which are numbered to match the number on the print and are either signed by the artist or a member of the artist's family (if the artist is deceased) or by the master printer.

888 Collection

The 888 Collection are Giclée prints containing a printed signature by the artist in the border and individually hand numbered out of the edition size of 888. The Collection has been carefully curated to offer styles and images that will complement the living spaces of the most discerning world traveller and art collector. The Giclées are produced on archival 230GSM paper, and are printed to Rosenstiel's high standards. The technique involved is a time consuming process that Rosenstiel's has made their own, to ensure the highest possible reproduction quality. The end result is an affordable product, but produced so that the colour and beauty of the images last a lifetime.

Atelier Collection

The vast majority of the Atelier Collection are printed from original or early copper plates and are then hand coloured by artists. This represents the best of 19th Century British and European Art and they can be regarded as antiques of the future. A full explanation of the processes are contained in our leather bound Atelier Book and also appear on our website under Superior Editions.
