David Kuijers - Giclées

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”.

This range is available either framed or unframed and is a Print On Demand service which requires a two to four week lead-time.
