Terms of Service


ArtbytheArtist.com is a juried fine art website for artists. All fine art showcased by ArtbytheAtist.com is selected through a jury.

Our concept is simple: we offer archival, investment quality original art reproductions on fine art paper and canvas gicleé' at affordable prices. We do not sell to distributors or galleries. By eliminating these entities we can pass those savings directly to the consumer.

Galleries and Publishers can only display a few select artists. Their overhead is huge and their profit is even larger, offering the artist a very small “piece of the pie”. If an artist is represented by a gallery or publisher they are typically paid eight to twelve percent of the wholesale price of a print. They bank on the premise that “more is better” and you literally have to surf through thousands of amateur quality art that artists have uploaded themselves.

We do not and will not produce large “limited” edition runs. ArtbytheArtist.com produces very small print runs. You will never see a limited edition run of more than 300 signed & numbered prints. In fact the majority of our editions are far less. Our “Majestic” edition is limited to only 10 total prints. These tend to sell out quickly and are true investments. We want to bring limited editions back to being “limited”. This creates a secondary market after the art is sold out. The supply and demand will force the artwork to increase in value, making it a collectible commodity.

Our images are NOT uploaded by the artist. All images are judged by a jury of professionals which have to unanimously accept the image before it is offered for sale on ArtbytheArtist.com

When you buy art from our website, you are truly purchasing ART by the ARTIST without going through a publisher or gallery...


Artwork Quality: ArtbytheArtist.com produces the finest quality gicleés. Not all canvases are the same in quality. We appreciate that your art represent your cherished memories, for this reason we use the finest materials so your canvas will be preserved for generations.
Canvas Coating: ArtbytheArtist.com canvas' gicleés are coated with a stunning finish - somewhere between gloss and semi-gloss. This coating offers the best saturation and contrast without the drawbacks of high gloss. We use a machine to coat the canvas. We do not use sprays and rollers which can leave a spotty or uneven finish. Our process enhances the image and makes the surface uniform. It prolongs the life of the image and protects against fingerprints, smudges, abrasions, and offers complete UV protection.
