  • ABOUT Anjolie Ela Menon

    Anjolie Ela Menon (born 1940) is one of India's leading contemporary female artists. Her paintings are in several major collections. Menon took up art while still in school, and by the time she was 15, had already sold a few paintings. Finding the J.J. School of Art academically stifling, in 1959, Menon departed India to study art in Europe on a scholarship from the French Government.

    Menon's preferred medium is oil on masonite, though she has also worked in other media, including glass and water colour. She is a well known muralist. It is extremely difficult to compartmentalize Menon’s work because she has been painting for so long, and also because of the changes that her oeuvre has constantly undergone.

    Anjolie Ela Menon was awarded the Padma Shree, India's fourth highest civilian honour, in 2000.

  • ABOUT Limited Edition Prints

    Limited Edition Prints are a series of identical prints of an artwork, commissioned by the artist. Restricted to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces, each print is numbered and signed by the artist, establishing its’ authenticity.

    Because the number of prints is limited, signed prints of acclaimed artists hold value, and can be investment-worthy, just like original works of art. Christie’s and Sotheby’s – the world’s two most renowned auction houses – hold auctions exclusively for prints. A Pablo Picasso print sold for US$1.7 million in 2010!

    There are different techniques in printmaking, including offset printing, digital printing, lithography and serigraphy. Serigraphy, or silk screen printing is considered one of the most sophisticated techniques. In this process, thick, opaque colours are passed through the screen, creating prints with vibrant colours and beautiful textures, that make the artwork look just like a painting.

    Works by any artist are limited, and prints are a fantastic way for acclaimed artists, to make their art available to a larger number of people. This makes limited edition prints popular amongst new art buyers as well as seasoned art collectors.
