Digigraphie is becoming increasingly recognised in the world of art, making the Epson name synonmous with the highest quality colour reproduction. Digigraphie allows photographic artists and painters to create limited, certified editions of their original works of art, using Epson's most advanced print technology.

The advantage for artists is that they can control the quality themselves, as well as the number of prints produced, ensuring that each one is a perfect reproduction of their original work, capturing the same emotions and aspirations.

Ingres (1780-1867): “a revolutionary, albeit an inward one”

Long regarded as the ultimate representative of the Davidian neo-classicism and the avowed rival of Delacroix, Ingres is above all, to use his own words, “a revolutionary, albeit an inward one.” His originality must be appreciated by reference to the classical rules and precepts that he embraced with such conviction, and that he transgressed with much the same fervor.áThis Ingres retrospective gives equal weight to all facets and all phases of the artist’s career, from the primitivism of his youth to the glorious indecency of the last nudes, the culmination of his “love of women” and unclassifiable modernity.
