Fine art editions offer an affordable and accessible way to build an art collection. Editioned artworks can vary in medium (from prints and sculptures, for example) and are produced at one time by the artist in a limited number. Each piece is signed and numbered. No additional artworks are ever produced beyond the determined edition number, which is why they remain valuable investment opportunities.

Our curators and production team members work closely with hand-picked artists to realize these editions. They are an affordable but nonetheless beautiful option for those not ready to make a huge investment. Kings Wood Art Editions are distinguished on the site in the decor section of our website.
What is a print?
Printmaking is an umbrella term for a variety of fine art techniques that involve producing an artwork in multiples. These include various methods developed throughout the course of art history—from traditions such as etching, woodcut printing, and lithography to more recent advances like digital printing—all of which are derived from the same concept: the artist transfers an image of his or her own design from a source (a metal, wood, or stone plate, for example) to paper, fabric, or the like.
What does "embellished" or "hand-embellished" mean?
The word "embellish" is "to make beautiful by ornamentation, to adorn or to add fanciful details to." When we’re talking about art on canvas, embellishing refers to painting over areas of the image to enhance color and/or to add brush strokes to the finished work. Embellishing techniques are as unique as the artist themselves - some use oil paints while others use clear gesso, some have a great deal of texture while others apply a thin layer of paint. In either case, the canvas has more texture and dimension when it is embellished and looks more like an original. And both serigraphs and giclees can be embellished.Since embellished canvases involve greater involvement on the part of the artist than an unembellished one, art lovers can get a step closer to an original at a fraction of the cost. Embellished editions are usually considerably smaller than the regular edition and a lit bit more expensive. The late artist, Pino, for example, had 295 in his regular edition for his limited edition giclees and only 95 in his embellished edition. The more limited supply and increased demand make for a more collectible piece of art.
