International Graphics Walmsley GmbH – The Company
30 years ago, when Lawrence Walmsley founded his publishing house with the representative name International Graphics (IG), the art market was booming worldwide. Museums and galleries were springing up around the globe and art fairs took place everywhere. In those days, unknown artists made it big almost every day; some went on to become international stars.
Lawrence Walmsley combined these two areas – art and innovative reproduction technology – in his company. This was what turned International Graphics into a success story. Over the last three decades, it became an internationally successful expanding art print publisher, active in all areas related to high-quality art reproduction.
Lawrence Walmsley, together with a team of experienced specialists, has continuously developed and expanded the company. Today, more than 4,500 specialist shops across the world are supplied with high-quality art prints, postcards, posters, Fine Art Prints and much, much more. Reproductions of world-renowned masterpieces are part of IG’s range, as well as exclusive images from interesting contemporary artists, who, until they were featured in the IG catalogue, were complete unknowns.
The secret of IG’s success is based on three principles: excellent selections, superb printing techniques and first-class service.
The publisher personally vouches for the choice; Lawrence Walmsley and his team search for proposals for their extensive art print range at the largest international trade fairs for art and art prints as well as in the workshops of interesting artists from across the world.
IG does not just cater for mainstream tastes, but discovers and taps into very particular niches which it then introduces to specialist shops. In this way, the IG range constantly develops new facets.
IG’s most important marketing tool for specialist shops is the over 1,000-page main catalogue, published yearly. In this catalogue, and in the supplements published regularly throughout the year, the range is displayed impressively and true to colour. Through this compendium, the specialist dealers can best meet the wishes of their customer, however unusual they may be.
“International Graphics is authentic contemporary art in fine art quality at affordable prices.”
Lawrence Walmsley, Managing Director IG
