What is a portfolio?

Portfolio is the term used to describe a set or series of images collected in a folder to be stored or displayed. Artists often keep images together which they prefer to present as a group. Some are related thematically, while others are not.

Artwork by Agnes Martin
Gelatin Silver Print

Print made through the silver process(Gelatin) using the currently available photographic materials, the printing papers and the black and white films. In this process, the silver-salts suspension in gelatin is coated to a support that could be a film or flexible plastic, a glass, a resin-coated or baryta paper. These materials are light-sensitive and very stable under the usual keeping conditions.

Limited Edition Print

A limited edition print is one of a number of prints made at the same time from one printmaking plate. A fixed number are made and signed by the artist, indicating the printing order, using the format 1/10, meaning “first of ten prints”.
