Having a limited edition print means that your print of an original artwork is part of a limited number that exist in that size. Limited edition prints are considered more of a rarity than open reproduction prints, and therefore often have a higher perceived value as they will not be printed again.
Although original paintings still command higher prices than works on paper, an increasing number of South African and international collectors have begun to realise the value of collecting limited-edition prints
. There are many outstanding, contemporary South African artists
such as Lisette Forsyth
whose works on paper are being eagerly snapped up - largely on account of their increasing investment potential.
