Anita Lamberti Fuchs - Giclées

Anita Lamberti Fuchs began her journey into the art world painting in watercolours and they remain her first love. It has taken time and determination to achieve the loose appearance in oils that is so easily mastered in watercolours, as they melt and mould with a life of their own. Oils have much more scope and she is enjoying the process of exploring different styles and techniques with this medium.

The word “giclée” was coined by Jack Duganne in 1991, a printmaker working at Nash Editions. He wanted a name for the new type of prints they were printing on the IRIS printer, a large format, high resolution industrial prepress proofing ink-jet printer they had adapted for fine art printing. He was specifically looking for a word that would not have the negative connotations of “ink-jet” or “computer generated”. To make the word descriptive of ink-jet technologies, he based it on the French word “le gicleur” meaning “nozzle”, or more specifically “gicler”, meaning “to squirt, spurt, or spray”.
