What is the difference between a framed print, and a new reproduction painting? If one overlooks the distortion caused by my camera's flash, and the slight tilt to one of the paintings, you can easily see the distinction. The painting on the right is a (not at all inexpensive) print of the original painting. It is exactly what the artist made, but the print looks dark and muddy. The version on the right is a new painting by 1st Art Gallery, and much brighter and more detailed, just like what you would see in a museum. Sure, it's not a fingerprint-like duplicate, but why should it be? Embrace that you have an original, and there's nothing in the world like it!
