Many of the greatest works of art are copied through the quality reproductions prints that are made from them.  There are merely thousands of titles that are copied for many different types of uses in the art world.  Many customers and collectors prefer this type of print because it is more cost efficient than actually owning the original work.  This keeps the demand for this type of print rather high, and for those artists whose work has become highly sought after the demand is even greater. 

A reproduction is a great idea because it can be sized to fit any space, wall or other surface.  This is perfect for the company that has a large section of wall to cover and find themselves in need of a print that is exceedingly larger than the original.  It is also perfect for the home owner who would love to have a copy of a work of art, but they lack the space that the original would require.  This gives a decorator, business owner or home owner a lot of versatility when it comes to arranging art pieces.

Of course, some prefer the reproduction to be an exact replica of the original.  These types of prints are usually made in editions that are numbered, signed and come with a letter of authenticity.  Because these types of prints are commissioned either by the artist or a representative of the artist, and the fact that they are signed makes them valuable. The value continues to climb as the notoriety of the artist or the demand of the artist increases. 

Some collectors insist on having a reproduction of each and every piece that they purchase.  The reason for this is security and safety for the original painting.  This allows a collector to store a piece away in a humidified and safe area where it will be kept from the harm of fire or water damage.  It also allows the collector to still display and enjoy the piece at the same time.  Even museums opt to have a reproduction of the works that they have on permanent exhibit. They do this so that the originals can be cleaned and maintained while they are still being displayed through the use of the replica print. 

Perhaps the biggest reason why a copy is so attractive to some collectors is because the original is simply unattainable for one reason or the other.  Either the piece is permanently housed in a museum or the price tag would be too expensive for a collector to actually buy. 

It is also possible to buy more than one copy of a work of art, but this would not be possible when purchasing the original.  Many times these are individually unique because of the process used to create them.  If the artist is creating them using the giclee method, then each one will be slightly different from the last. 

While there may be many reasons, it is clear that there is certainly a rather high demand for these quality replicas and prints.
