Giclee is the fine art of photographic reproduction using a high quality inkjet printer to make individual copies. In giclee printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern. The term giclee was coined in 1991 by printmaker, Jack Duganne. The term is based on the French word gicleur meaning “nozzle”. The verb form “gicier” means “to squirt, spurt, or spray” which is how an inkjet printer works. However it is not the same as a standard desktop inkjet printer. The way the image is scanned is different. The original is scanned directly on a drum scanner. Giclee printers use special light-fast inks, which, if kept out of the sun, will remain true for up to 25 years. Giclee prints can be produced on any paper or canvas desired.


In all of Dali’s paintings you can find a self-portrait. That is, if you look hard you will see at least a silhouette of Dali himself.
