I discovered a few days ago someone selling what they said was a Sarah Corner painting, but it was actually a print of a painting I was commissioned to paint some years ago by the Lake hotel in Killarney, Kerry. My original oil painting was 26"x48" and can be seen at the hotel. I have never published a print of this painting myself but the Hotel with my permission made some prints of the painting to give away free to guests at the hotel as a memento of their stay. I had no input whatsoever in the production of the prints and they are most definitely not the same high quality as my own museum standard limited edition Giclee prints, but they were only intended as a free gift and I have heard that they may not be 100% light fast ( meaning their colour may fade in strong sunlight). This gives me an opportunity to stress again the importance of buying good quality prints such as my own ones are,the inks and paper I use are of the highest quality available and are also 100% printed in Ireland. All my prints come with a certificate of authenticity signed by the printer and myself and the prints are signed and numbered by me to give you the security of knowing you are buying the genuine high quality article and will allow the prints to be resold in the future if you should wish. If a print has not been signed and numbered by me, then it is not one of my prints!
