Original Frame?

L.S. Lowry

R.B.A., R.A.

Original etchings and old silkscreen prints produced by hand have created the idea that some work ie. low numbers in the edition are more valuable
This is due to the printing process where the plates are inked, and it is suggested that earlier numbers could be slightly clearer than the later ones.
Some sales people can unwittingly confuse a client by implying one number of a photo litho is better or more valuable than another
This is completely incorrect.
