Helen Bradley's limited editions have
always found favour with collectors and are still sort after on the secondary
|Since 1981 three unsigned limited editions have been published, all bearing the stamp of The Fine Art Trade Guild.|
|In 1973 the flood of requests for unlimited prints prompted the publication of "All on an April Evening" and "Family in Spring Lane". Eight more were to follow. The ten prints are illustrated on the following pages and are available from your local picture framer or art shop who will frame them to your requirements.|
|All Signed limited-edition prints were approved and stamped by The Fine Art Trade Guild, a completely independent trade association. The embossed stamp appears immediately below the left-hand corner of the image, balancing the artist's signature on the right. On unsigned editions (published after the artist's death) it is below the centre of the image.|
|The Guild stamp confers three benefits of lasting value.|
|First it gives you absolute confidence that the stated limit of the edition is ensured. Each copy in the edition bears a unique combination of three letters to the right of the symbol; this is a code, in which each letter represents a figure, so that every print can be seen to have its own individual number.|
|Secondly, it confirms that the print has been produced in accordance with the Guild's strict regulations, using high quality acid-free paper and fade resistant inks. By taking care that it is not exposed to direct sunlight or fluorescent light and protecting it from conditions of high humidity you can extend its life over a period of very many years.|
|Thirdly it testifies to the fact that your print is a faithful reproduction of the original painting, approved by the artist.|
