Cathedral Giclée Prints

During my Centennial Exhibition at the National Cathedral in Washington, giclée prints of six paintings were offered for sale in the Cathedral Store.

Produced by a relatively new process, a giclée is a fine art reproduction of an original painting. The printing process uses modern digital technology first to scan the painting. Then the piece is hand mounted on a drum which rotates during printing. As the drum rotates, over four million ink drops a second are sprayed on the paper in calculated patterns. The Archival inks which have the possibility of producing over three million shades of color, produce incredibly accurate images. Before the actual giclees were printed, proofs were produced. The printer and I carefully compared each proof to the original painting for accuracy until we were sure it was a faithful reproduction of the original. When the printing was finished, it was all but impossible to tell the difference between the giclées and the original paintings.
