|Art Print Terms
In a limited edition issuance of a print, it is the first few prints produced that are available to the artist for quality control inspection or the artist's own use. Originally, the first prints were of the best quality; in modern production, all prints are essentially equal, so there is no quality advantage to obtaining an artist's proof. However, artist's proof have a smaller edition size than the total run, and can range from just a few to perhaps 100 total prints being identified as "artist's proof".
