Do I have an original?
We should begin by tempering expectations: the odds are that you do not have an original.

The simplest way to determine whether you have an original is to look at it under magnification. A reproduction will have dots. You can see some examples of these dots here if you would like.

People often mistake canvas transfer prints for originals. Produced in the 1970s, canvas transfer prints were printed on canvas with a brush stroke textured gesso finish, and mounted on wooden stretcher frames like an oil painting. With the back of the raw canvas exposed when seen from behind, these prints are frequently mistaken for originals. A close examination with a high-powered magnifying glass will reveal the lithographic printing dots, and the lack of correlation between the textured brush strokes and DeGrazia’s predominant palette knife strokes. The colors in many of these prints have faded from UV exposure, primarily from unfiltered sunlight. These prints should be kept out of sunlight and lit with UV filtered light to forestall any further degradation, and periodically cleaned with a damp lint-free cloth. Unfortunately, these prints were produced in large unlimited editions and have no great resale value.

Are you open on…?

Who owns the Gallery?
The Gallery is owned and operated by the DeGrazia Foundation.

I didn’t receive a confirmation email. Should I place another order?
