Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Mr.Winkle Fine Art Collection. Please call us at (626) 398-1275 if you would like more assistance or information. We aim to accommodate your individual needs for these special purchases.

WHAT IS A FINE ART LIMITED EDITION PRINT?
A fine art limited edition print differs from a mass produced print (such as the art in Mr. Winkle calendars and books) in several ways:

1. Fine art prints are in limited editions, thereby increasing their value in the present
and over time. For example, if the number in the edition is 24, that means only 24 prints of that image will ever be in existence, often making them sought after by serious collectors. The lower the edition the more valuable the print. But many people collect simply for the love of the work. Prints from the Mr. Winkle fine art collection are in editions of either 12, 16, or 24, depending on the image and its size. (See "Price List" section for more specific information.)

2. True fine art images, including ours, are printed with the highest quality archival papers and inks available. They will last much longer than mass produced images well beyond a lifetime if you keep them out of direct sunlight and damp environments.

3. Fine art prints are signed by the artist, with notice of authenticity and edition number.

4. The last distinction is less concrete and more open to interpretation, but equally important. There is often a feel to a fine art photograph in terms of its style and execution that distinguishes it from a more commercial image. Fine art photographs are often deeper, more personal expressions of what the artist's feels about his or her subject, and usually less concerned with its commercial appeal. This often results in work that is the most timeless, rare and sacred to both the artist and collector. Mr. Winkle fine art prints are no exception. They are the artist's most personal and heartfelt expression of her beloved muse Mr.Winkle, and more closely related to her interpretive fine art/documentary work.

IS MATTING AND FRAMING INCLUDED IN THE COST?
We can mat and frame any print for an additional $130.00 below actual costs for this service, using museum quality archival white fiber boards with black wood frames. ***** The matting and framing add 5 inches on each side of the print, so measure your wall space carefully. If your print is 22 inches square for example, your final matted and framed piece will be 32 inches square.

WHAT SIZES ARE THE PRINTS AVAILABLE IN?
There are two standard sizes available if you order online. (If you want a custom size it is necessary to order by phone.) The large size for all the square formatted images is 22" x 22" The small size will always be roughly half the large size; in this case, 11" x 11" The rectangular images vary a little more in their standard sizes, but are roughly 15" x 23" for the large size, and 7.5" x 11.5" for the small size. Once again, keep in mind that matting and framing add about five inches on each side of the print.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO ORDER A LESS EXPENSIVE PRINT NOT INCLUDED IN THE FINE ART COLLECTION - LIKE ONE OF MY FAVORITE PHOTOS FROM THE MR. WINKLE CALENDARS?
Yes, but you must call to special order by phone, These prints will have the same archival quality and be signed by the artist, but their editions are not limited. Prices are therefore lower, starting at $150.00, depending on the size of the image and other considerations. Framing and matting rates will be roughly the same. Call 626 398 1275 for further inquiries.
