How to recognize an original lithography?

The field of lithographic reproduction is now well organized and meets precise rules. Each of these rules guarantees the authenticity of the lithography and makes it possible to determine its value.


The paper: the lithographs are drawn on high quality, heavyweight paper. The filligrane - a brand that can be seen in transparency - testifies to the quality of the paper and the identity of its manufacturer: BFK, Velin de Rives, Canson, etc.


The number of edition: the number of lithographs representing the same subject is regulated and must appear on the work. Indicated in graphite pencil, it serves as proof of printing.


The signature: the signature is always written in pencil and appears on the right of the work at the bottom, below the image.
