    An original artwork is an artwork made by the hand of the artist, be it a painting, a drawing, a carved sculpture, etc. Because of their fabrication process, bronze sculptures have a somehow different meaning of "original", which may depend on the local legislation : in France, a numbered bronze molding made directly from the artist's mold qualifies as an "original" if the total number of specimens is less or equals to eight, plus four "artist's proofs".
    Irena Orlov ArtFebruary 25, 2021
    When we refer to "original" it simply means a unique painting made by the artist's own hand.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    An original painting is anything thought to be the true work of the artist instead of an imitation or reproduction. Original art can be in any media, as long as it is the first of that piece of art.
    Irena Orlov ArtFebruary 25, 2021
    When we refer to "original" it simply means a unique painting made by the artist's own hand. Acrylic, oil, engraving, watercolor, or drawings are authentic techniques that allow the artist to capture his or her distinctive stamp: such as textures, a particular way of brushstroke, colors, lines, among other elements. But besides, the idea must be unique, the result of creativity, which makes the work more valuable and desirable.

    Historians are not completely sure where tapestries originated. Ancient literature from Rome, Greece and other civilizations does not specifically mention tapestries, but that doesn't mean that they didn't exist. We do know that the Ancient Egyptians did produce and utilize tapestries, as examples have been discovered in the tombs of Thutmose IV and Tutankhamen. The word tapestry wasn't coined until the 15th century, and it originated in England. Find a wide variety of tapestries on 1stDibs.

    An original lithograph is a print made by way of a specific printing method (one of the most commonly used methods in the 20th and 21st centuries). With respect to lithography, the process begins by drawing on or painting on a stone surface with an oil-based substance, such as a greasy crayon or tusche (an oily wash). The stone is then covered with water, which is repelled by the oily areas. Oil-based ink is then applied to the wet stone, adhering only to the oily image. The stone is then covered with a sheet of paper and run through a press.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 16, 2024
    No, a lithograph is not an original. Lithographs are prints, which are authorized reproductions of works produced by artists. To produce a lithograph, an artist applies an image to a stone. Then, they treat the stone with chemicals to impart the image into it. Finally, they apply ink and transfer the image onto paper or another medium. Shop a large selection of lithographs on 1stDibs.

    The original Cartier Tank watch, which was emblematic of a stark departure from the renowned jewelry house’s curved and round watch faces in that its case resembled the FT-17’s cockpit, served as a sleek update to the Santos watch. Crafted in 1917, one year before the Great War came to a close, Cartier’s Tank watch reportedly borrowed its clean, sharp lines and boxy silhouette from France’s legendary Renault FT-17 light tank, itself a compact and extraordinary design that inspired numerous copies. When the Tank watch went to market, Cartier offered a limited run in Paris. After those quickly sold, it was given a name, the Tank Normale. The timepiece took off in popularity, but only slightly more than 30 were made in 1920 and annual production has been slow over the years since then. Find Cartier Tank watches on 1stDibs.

    Purses were originally made for men. Although we now largely equate handbags with women's apparel and accessories, purses have been practical accessories since hunter-gatherers wandered the earth carrying foraged fruits and nuts in simple handmade pouches marked with a scratch or two to denote ownership. In Ancient Egypt, pouches were worn by men around their waists. During the 16th century, men proudly proclaimed their wealth with coin pouches hanging from their belts, while women carried their possessions, scented and secreted, in the folds of their voluminous skirts. Later, purses became more commonly carried by women than men. Find a variety of handbags on 1stDibs.
