About Vue Privée Prints
How can Vue Privée offer such accessible prices for our limited edition prints?
Our goal is to democratize the art world by offering museum quality prints at a much lower price. We work with artists who believe in making art accessible to a wider audience. The photographers and artists we collaborate with at Vue Privée have agreed to increase the number of prints based on fair market pricing. Standard gallery practice is to offer fine art photography prints at editions of 25 or lower. By offering editions of 100 or 500, we are able to change the cost accordingly to offer them at prices below $2,000.
How do I know that my Vue Privée print is authentic?
All limited edition prints comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. To guarantee the authenticity, each certificate comes signed by the VP's founder, Olivier Henry, and/or by the specific artist. Additionally, all certificates are stamped with VP's official company seal.
What are the print sizes, edition size, and price range at Vue Privée?
Whether you're buying a print as a gift or for your private collection, our goal at Vue Privée is to offer prints to collectors at accessible prices. Vue Privée offers 3 types of series designed for specifically for you:
Depending on the artist, each limited edition print will be maximum size of 35.5cm x 28cm (or equivalent) printed on archival paper and mounted on 40 x 50cm archival matte board with passé partout. The print comes in an edition size of 500 +5 artist proofs at a starting price under $100.
This series is offered in two sizes, both available at editions of 100 +5 artist proofs.
Option 1: Depending on the artist, each limited edition print will be maximum size of 40cm x 60cm (or equivalent) printed on archival paper. The starting price is $150.
Option 2: Depending on the artist, each limited edition print will be maximum size of 60cm x 90cm (or equivalent) printed on archival paper. The starting price is $400.
Sizes will vary depending on the artist. Each artwork is available unframed or with framing/mounting per the artist's preference. Prints come in edition sizes less than 25 + artist proofs (if available), which will vary depending on the artist, at a starting price of $2000 or above.
Why do the prices change for l'aventurier series as more are sold?
When an edition is sold out, its value increases since the supply no longer available. Galleries practice the concept of increased prices for the last copies of an edition. After 75% of the series is sold, the price increases for the remaining 25% available in the edition. This model rewards the purchaser who buys before the price increase. It is important to be aware that the price increase is within the value of the artwork and is not considered overpaying.
Do prints look exactly like the images we see online?
We strive to ensure that the images you see online are similar to our final prints. Nonetheless, the tonal qualities of the type of paper each artist/photographer choose to print on may vary, which will differ slightly from what you see on the screen. We also use calibrated monitors to produce test strips to match the true colors with our artists and photographers. However, most of you do not have calibrated monitors and therefore your monitor might display colors incorrectly.
How can I purchase a print without ordering it online?
We stock all our images at our Vue Privée gallery situated on 20 Cairnhill Road, Singapore 229652. It is a yellow shophouse located off Orchard Road within a 5 minute walking distance of Somerset MRT station.
