Museum Replicas - The Art of Imitation
The practice of copying famous paintings has a long tradition in art. Even during artistic training, making study copies is a widespread technique to gain practical knowledge and develop a personal style. Many artists even made copies of their works. These reproductions were often made at the request of clients. For many artists, such commissioned replicas from their own hands were a lucrative source of income. Thanks to modern technology, it is now possible to produce replicas of museum paintings - using innovative methods which make the originals almost indistinguishable from the imitations. You can find such museum replicas among our selection - of course, as approved reproductions with appropriate certification.
With up to 140 Colour Applications - Elaborate Reproductions in the Museum Replica Shop
When you order a lavish reproduction of our Museum Replica Shop, you can be sure that the copy will barely differ from the original. Such perfect reproductions of great works by Jan Brueghel the Elder, Rachel Ruysch or August Macke are created as Dietz Offizin. There, the original artist's colours are used and applied in up to 140 different coats of paint to the same substrate that the artist used. This creates a true-to-the-original reproduction that accurately reproduces the motif and the colouring, as well as showing the relief-like structure and the pastiness of the paint structure of the original. In fact, these museum replicas are so faithful to the originals that they have to be provided with a security note. However, this does not interfere with the optics, as it is only visible under X-ray light. In addition to Dietz replicas, we offer museum replicas as Giclée prints, which are digitally printed and then refined.
Museum Replicas in Limited Editions - Collectors' Items for Art Lovers
While there is usually only one original of the masterpieces of well-known artists, museum replicas are often produced in larger numbers. In most cases, these are inexpensive mass-produced items - but not museum replicas from our shop. Due to the elaborate process and the above-average quality, these are already works that stand out from classic art prints. Furthermore, our museum replicas are produced in limited numbers. This means that you can be sure that your reproduction is one of a few selected copies that will uniquely enrich your collection.
