The Story of To Touch an Angel
The second painting of Ronald Suchiu’s Living Legend Series focuses on Dr. Jane Goodall. Her outstanding long-term studies and her self-gained, groundbreaking knowledge of chimpanzees have made her a world-renowned Eco-Hero.
Even after accomplishing a life mission that demanded unparalleled courage and devotion, Dr. Goodall went on to not only oversee one of the most steadfast, environmental groups in the world, The Jane Goodall Foundation, but she has also taken it to heart to devote most of her waking hours to teach us what we need to know about our sensitively balanced world.
In quoting Ronald Suchiu, “No one will ever write two or three paragraphs that will even scratch the surface on what makes Dr. Jane Goodall a Living Legend.”
I was deeply honored and very humbled when painting “To Touch an Angel” I could only expect to give you a diminutive moment in time. This moment I offer you is made up of a situation that has happened ever so rarely in our species’ conscious history. Look carefully into the faces of Dr. Goodall and her dear friend and you will also feel a hint of the magical emotions that are created when two totally unique life-forms communes so powerfully as to alter history.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Do you offer shipping?
Yes! Whether you are ordering a limited edition print unframed or with a frame, we can ship your order to you anywhere across North America and beyond. Each order is handled with the utmost care and packaged with protection to ensure it is received by you in the same condition that it left our gallery.
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.
