An original print should represent itself, not be a copy of another work.
The Swedish Fine Art Print Society has in its portfolios a variety of printmaking techniques and artistic expressions. The association’s goal and desire since its founding in 1887, is to spread knowledge and insight about primarily Swedish printmaking and in our portfolios our aim is to reflect and promote the best in Swedish contemporary art, which includes printmaking techniques right now.
We are careful to inform in our information about each artist’s work its technique, size, edition and other information that may be of interest to our members. In our publications, you can always be sure that it is the combination of artistic expression and great craftsmanship that is leading.
Pure reproductions of paintings, watercolors, etc. original works that have been photographed or scanned and then printed on quality paper by high-quality printers will never be considered in our publications. Even if they are signed and numbered by the artist himself. The latter are, in our opinion, reproductions, perhaps of the best quality, but not fine art printmaking.
