How are the sizes of the artworks on the website measured?

We have mostly measured the "picture only" size in centimetres as a reference in the description. It might vary with a few millimetres here and there because of a signature or artwork that is not exactly straight. We did however include a paper size on some artworks, where the paper size was significantly bigger than the picture size.

The plate is then put through a high-pressure printing press together with a sheet of paper.The paper picks up the ink from the etched lines, making a print.
