About this term

Source: Oxford University Press

Term applied to sets of both two- and three-dimensional works. The limitation of the number produced indicates controlled production of a replicated image or model from the matrix of an original work of art and adds value to the works themselves, since the purchaser thereby has an implicit guarantee of exclusivity.
