The R.M.S. TITANIC set sail on its maiden voyage from Southampton on the struck an iceberg, meeting its demise off the coast of Newfoundland on its first and only journey.
The story is a classic, stirring the imagination of each generation. Two great films have been produced: the first in 1959, the second in 1998. Expeditions have been mounted to visit the wreck to retrieve pieces and to bring sections to the surface which lie buried deep on the ocean floor. For many, the EDMUND FITZGERALD and the R.M.S. TITANIC holds an undeniable mystique.
Internationally renowned artist Ronald Suchiu launched his rendition of the EDMUND FITZGERALD in 1992, and on August 23, 1998, the TITANIC. One thousand people attended the unveiling at the Caboto Club in Windsor.
The honor of unveiling the painting, with Suchiu, was bestowed upon MPP Bruce Crozier and Ron’s personal friend Joe Gibson. Pelee Island Winery in Kingsville added to the enjoyment of the event by unveiling two collectible wines handsomely packaged in custom made wooden cases, bearing the two unique labels produced from Suchiu’s EDMUND FITZGERALD and the TITANIC art.
Not only is TITANIC a fantastic print at an equally fantastic price, it also has a built-in bonus that is bound to push it through the collectible ceiling of value! Only 230 limited edition prints were hand-signed by one of the most important names in Titanic history, Millvina Dean (the youngest TITANIC survivor). These prints are available for purchase.
Suchiu puts the icing on the cake. If you want something rare and unique for your collection, Suchiu is allowing only 50 hand-painted remarques to be sold for TITANIC.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does secondary market mean?
When a limited edition print series sells out, they become only available on the secondary market, where they are sold between collectors and from Suchiu Art at sometimes double, triple or even quadruple the original retail price because of their high demand, rarity and collectability.
What are limited edition prints?
Unlike an open edition print series that can be endlessly reproduced, in a limited edition print series, the artist restricts the total number of prints to be produced so it will maintain its collectability throughout the test of time, therefore increasing its monetary value. A limited edition print series is broken down again into three categories: press proofs, artist proofs and signed and numbered.
What types of limited edition prints are there?
When an artist does a limited edition print series of an original painting, the first few prints that come off the press are called press or printer proofs. The first few samples that are printed off are put to the side as press proofs, having been ‘proofed’ by the person running the press prior to the artist’s arrival. Usually, press proofs only make up about 1% of the entire print run.
During a print run, the artist and the person running the press will intermittently pull samples and set them aside for proofing. Traditionally, press proofs would be proofed by the press operator and artist proofs would be proofed by the artist. At Suchiu Art, artist proofs make up only about 10% of a given limited edition print series.
Signed & Numbered
The majority of a limited edition print run is designated to a series called signed and numbered. The signed and numbered limited edition print series contains the largest quantity of reproductions for that specific painting. Nonetheless, the total quantity of prints produced in a given signed and numbered limited edition print series will still be restricted in comparison to demand to maintain a sense of urgency for collectors and retain the print series overall value.
