Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Kamagraphy


Kamagraphy: noun - process for making copies of original paintings, using a special press and treated canvas, which reproduces accurate colours and the texture of the brushstrokes.

Ideal for galleries, I imagine. But it does rather beg the question; ‘What about forgeries?’ And, of course, it explains why it’s possible to view what appear to be original paintings in more than one public gallery. Clever stuff, eh?
