l'explorateur offers artworks priced at S$80. This series is ideal for first time collectors just learning about art. Each print comes mounted on a pH neutral matte board with a front mounted "passe-partout" allowing the print to be framed without direct contact to the glass surface. This elegant and contemporary mounting approach gives the buyer a ready-to-exhibit artwork for display on shelves or to be placed into a standard frame for walls mounting.
l'aventurier offers artworks starting at S$150. This series is where discerning mid-level collectors can find a unique art purchase. The prints come unmounted, allowing the collector complete flexibility in mounting styles and display options. Like all limited editions available in Vue Privée, l'aventurier prints are produced on museum quality archival grade paper.
l'empereur offers limited edition artworks in varying edition sizes based on the artist's intent. Prices are dependent on artist, size and edition of the work. All artworks are available framed or mounted at an additional charge, for delivery in Singapore or worldwide. Please contact us for information and price quotes.
Fair Market Pricing
With the help of artists who believe in our philosophy, we are able to offer museum quality prints at much lower prices. The artists we collaborate with have agreed to increase the edition size based on fair market pricing. The fair price concept takes in account the reputation of the artist, significance of the work, size, and number of prints in the edition to generate a marketable selling price for larger editions by that artist. These factors are analyzed to help determine the new prices without creating a negative impact to the artist's career.
Our series, l'explorateur and l'aventurier, use this system to realize prices for our limited editions that fall under $2,000. This pricing system is not new. Fair market pricing has been accepted within the fine art market and has been successfully used by established art galleries located in North America and Europe.
An artist typically sells their artworks at an edition size of 10. When working with Vue Privée the artist agrees to make a new print at an edition of 100. Using the fair pricing model the artist's usual market price (S$5,000 at a size of 90cm x 60cm) is divided by 10 to get the new VP price. The new edition becomes $500 for a print at the same size as the original. Note, if the new print is at a smaller or larger size, then the price reflects the changes.
Museum Quality Prints
Vue Privée goes to great lengths to produce prints that adhere to each artist's intent. All prints are museum quality, printed on acid and lignin free archival papers. Our giclée prints are printed using Epson K3 archival inks that last for up to 108 years dependent on display conditions. Each paper medium is selected based the artist and series, thus will vary. The paper medium is noted on all certificates of authenticity. If you are interested in finding out more about print mediums or archival terms, please refer to the Glossary of Art Terms.
Vue Privee now offers giclee prints on archival grade canvas. With the artist’s approval we have carefully selected a limited number of prints for this mounting option. Our production partner, Brilliant Prints, has a strong reputation among its over 150,000 clients worldwide for exceptional quality. From the kiln-dried Meranti wood frame to the American made archival canvas, meticulous craftsmanship is evident; the result is a product that will bring the owner a lifetime of enjoyment all backed by a 75 year unconditional guarantee. All canvases enjoy certification by the Fine Art Trade Group for archival standards.
