Why an Original?

Often beginning as an initial sketch, original artworks can go through many laborious processes at the hands of an artist; including 3D sculpting and modelling, graphic designs, hand-painting, and more. It is the artist's original that paves the way for the production of signed limited edition artworks and represents the birthplace of their authentic, original idea. 

What's more, original artworks can take many forms; from oil paintings to sculptures to hand-embellished prints straight from the hands and studios of some of our most popular artists.

Our originals portfolio features work by internationally exhibited artists whose own artistic careers continually evolve as they experiment with different materials and techniques. This means buying an original artwork is like having a piece of art history and, accompanied with a letter of provenance, you can also be sure of an original artwork's authenticity.

There are many more benefits to owning an original artwork and you read more about them in our Fine Art Collector. You can also read about the differences betweem limited editions and originals on about our art.
