The advanced quality of Giclee artwork reproduction makes it the top choice over older, inferior techniques. With almost total control over the final product, Giclee printing gives artists more freedom than ever before. Individual requirements can easily be accommodated for each client/buyer, including changes in size, color, what the image is printed on, and alterations within the image itself.
When printed on canvas, the print can be beautifully stretched, varnished, textured, or gallery wrapped – which is a very popular choice among artists recently. When printed on paper, a client/buyer has the choice of which type is used with the option of varnishing or deckling. All finished pieces resemble the original work so closely that they often look identical and are hard to distinguish from one another.
We gladly consult and educate each of our clients/buyers about the Giclee industry, fine art publishing, and copyright laws. Certificates of authenticity are supplied to our clients/buyers to ensure that their print is of the highest quality. We also help artists in putting their work out there and increasing sales by connecting them with galleries and by featuring their work in our own fine art Giclee gallery website.
Raphael Nouril is at the forefront of classical art and contemporary Jewish art.
He has produced paintings depicting key religious and political figures and all aspects of Jewish family life. In addition, he has painted a wide selection of secular subjects, including still life, metropolitan landscapes and portraits of celebrities and monarchs.
Born in 1940 in Tabriz, Iran, Raphael Nouril's early promise as an artist was nurtured throughout his childhood as he drew and painted images gleaned from books, films and other sources which caught his searching eye and enquiring mind. However, to bring some formal shape to his talent, Raphael studied for four years under Reza Samini, an Iranian artist of rare skill and immense reputation. Under Samini's tutelage, his artistic sensibility matured and his reputation grew. But the quest to improve meant he had to abandon narrow national borders and attitudes.
Leaving Iran, Raphael moved to Paris, France to study at the world renowned École des Beaux-Arts. In search of new things, he was disappointed when the teachers turned him away because his talent already exceeded classroom expectations. They could do nothing more than advise him and encourage him to study the work of the old masters in various galleries and museums around Paris on his own. On completion of his now mandated self-taught studies, he left Paris to travel again.
Emigrating to London in 1970 proved a master stroke. Exhibitions and commissions followed and important people from the world of politics and business became his subjects. Now, his international reputation was secured.Raphael has painted portraits of known personalities including Dr. Henry Kissinger and the renowned portrait of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, World leader of the Chabad movement. He was commissioned by the Western Marble Arch Synagogue to paint the portrait of the Chief Rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks, which was presented in 1998. In 2000, also in London, he was commissioned to paint a portrait of Lord Immanuel Jakobivits (the late Emeritus Chief Rabbi) by the Friends of Bar Ilan University, Tel Aviv, for permanent display in the university.
Raphael has exhibited internationally including exhibitions at the National Heritage Gallery of Fine Art, Los Angeles (1986-1990), The Park Walk Gallery, Harrods, London, Library of Oxford University and the House of Commons, London
Following his success in New York, he was chosen to stage a solo exhibition in London at the Julian Simon Fine Art Gallery.
