Limited editions, authenticity, price:
1. What is an edition?
An edition is a single impression of a (printed) artwork that has been produced in multiple copies. Mankovsky Gallery works with limited editions which means that only a certain amount of impressions will be issued of the artwork you own. We carefully control the production of editions and strictly keep their number in fixed amounts (unless mentioned otherwise). Every single edition is numbered and signed (on the Certificate of Authenticity) by the artist.
2. How many editions per artwork?
All art is offered in a maximum of 175 editions divided between 3 formats (unless mentioned otherwise). Unlike other art dealers we do not work with varying numbers of editions. We have chosen a fixed number of editions to make sure the artworks we sell stay exclusive and keep their value as collector’s items.
3. How is it possible that your prices are so low?
We work effortlessly to curate amazing talent around the globe, some up-and-coming and some situated in the most renowned galleries. We do not represent the original piece (if not mentioned otherwise) but rather focus on a high-end reproduction of said art pieces.
4. What proves the authenticity of the work?
All our artworks come with a numbered certificate of authenticity manually and personally signed by the artist.
5. What does the artwork price include?
- A limited edition of the artwork of your choice
- Manually numbered and stamped artwork
- Artist signed and numbered certificate of authenticity
- Mankovsky Gallery's premium artist roll
6. What are the formats available for art pieces and why is there a difference in the numbered amount?
Mankovsky Gallery only works with 3 ”larger” sized formats and they differ in the amount available in each format
- Medium size; 50*70cm. Total number in edition 100pcs.
- Large size; 70*100cm. Total number in edition 50pcs.
- Extra large size; 100*140cm. Total number in edition 25pcs.
7. What is this art about?
Our artworks are well curated via direct contact with artists and via our collaborating gallery partners. We see that the art and interior world is changing and with that the demand for a new generation of artists and consumers have emerged. No more oil paint of landscapes, rather photo art, graphic illustrations and amazing street- and pop/neo-pop artists are what we at Mankovsky Gallery look for. We only curate what we love.
8. Will my artwork be worth anything in the after sales market?
The exclusive nature of limited edition works makes them potential collector’s items. After we have sold the 175 editions of an artwork we will not produce a single piece more so if there is demand, the price of the artwork you have purchased will raise on the market. We find emerging talent as well as well renowned artists, you are the first to be offered these gems therefore you will have the possibility to own something unique with amazing value-growth potential.

It is then cut by hand on a cutting table. When printed the artwork is inspected by the master printer and if it passes inspection it gets stamped and quality assured- signed on the back, numbered appropriately and finally embossed with the Mankovsky Gallery embossing stamp before being packed with an Artist signed Letter of Authenticity and shipped. Every piece of art is packed in a midnight black velvet roll stating our Mankovsky Gallery in True Red centered alongside.
23. Does my artwork require any maintenance?
We always recommend framing an artwork and have it covered with an UV glass. No work of art will survive if placed in direct sunlight.
