Art Print Terms HEADING_TITLE

Artist's Proof
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".
Copyright
Legal protection provided for the originator (an artist, for example) of an artwork, literary work, musical piece or similar creation. In the U.S., copyright protection is provided as soon as an item is created. Registration of a copyright with the Federal Copyright Office is not necessary, but provides public notice. Ownership of an original painting does not provide a copyright in that image. Permission to reproduce an original work of art is normally provided via a license.
