Frequently Asked Questions
|Q. How can there be a limited
edition of an historical or deceased artist?
A. Historical artists, in some cases, are public domain and certain paintings are accessible and can be made into prints by various publishers. NAC attempts to print privately owned pieces for exclusivity but many of our great paintings by such artists as Tom Thomson are in public galleries and could possibly be published by other printers. NAC strives to produce the highest quality in its editions. The paper employed is acid-free and the inks and craftsmanship of printmaking are superb.
In the situation where a particular painting is printed or published in the future by another publisher, the “NAC edition” is truly a treasured collectible on its merits of limited availability, excellent quality and unyielding integrity.
Each NAC edition is identified with an embossing or some distinct NAC marking. With the number applied to the print, NAC is stating what the size of the edition is.
