A work of art has a soul or an aura. From this principle, gauging the value of a work of art is, after all, relative and subjective. Several criteria can influence the setting of the price, but these are too subjective to play a decisive role: The working time, the cost of the material, the technique used, the market in which you operate, the visual quality, your career as artist, the quality of the technique, the complexity of the subject Here are some statistics which is not intended to influence you but to be simple indicators. Works sold regularly, we have a wide variety of pricing at the Pictorem gallery. This scale ranges from $20 per impression up to several thousand (price per area). Typically the majority of our artists use a price per dimension (between $2 and $5 per inch / or between $10 and $25 per square foot /) but lately the most common price setting remains a profit percentage on the cost of manufacturing (typically between 75% and 150% profit)

Canvas Print

To know which varnish to choose, it is important to understand the differences between each:

The non-varnished canvas has a stronger texture of the cotton which works very well for paintings.

The matte varnish has a much sleeker finish with a stronger depth in colors, making it more suitable for realistic photographed images (family, landscape, etc.).

The glossy finish is best used for images that are semi-digital (edited images) or digital images, with the glaze of the finish creating a reflection that almost emulates the lighting of a screen.

The silver finish is very special in nature and hence often a hit-and-miss. However, from our experience printing it. We noticed that images that have very strong contrast with prominently darker colors (for example, a picture of space) work very well

Please note: standards vary from clients to clients, hence we cannot guarantee that our opinion will adhere to your liking.
