Creating value with abstract art limited edition prints

Latest Sale explores the essence of creating value with abstract art limited edition prints and how to determine their value and authenticity.


The value of an artist’s signature on abstract art limited edition prints

Art buyers should check that the fine artist signs each abstract art limited edition print (although sometimes these abstract art limited edition prints may be signed by an authorized printer or distributor). Signatures can definitely bolster the value of abstract art limited edition prints in a market normally enjoying double the value of an unsigned print.


Print size and print editions

Abstract art limited edition prints such as ‘Secret’ sold on the Latest Sale site on behalf of abstract artist Ali Jabbar are normally sold as a replica in terms of size/ dimensions of the original piece of artwork developed.

A number may specify the details of a print edition, unlike open editions- unlimited edition prints- that can be reproduced in infinite numbers. For example limited edition prints are limited in number with the artist normally agreeing to a fixed quantity. If an artist agrees that a maximum of 100 abstract art limited edition prints should be reproduced, each limited edition print will be sold as an edition with the print run specified as print run edition 1/100, and print run edition 2/100 and so on. The earlier print runs from the edition will hold a higher value than the older print runs in the edition.
