noun. / ˈməltəpəl /
1). Multiples are identical works of art. They are not unique, by definition, but they can be quite valuable in all senses of the word. A Rodin bronze that can be cast several times is a multiple. A Warhol screenprint that can be printed several times is a multiple. Multiples pose philosophical questions about the nature of art and art’s uniqueness and they open up the art market to people who want to buy art at entry levels.
