Modern Masters of Etching
W Russell Flint
This is a fabulous collection of original, hand-tipped-in photogravures of etchings which were created for Modern Masters of Etching, The Studio Collection.
The photogravure plates were printed by Waterlow and Sons, London.
The 33 volume series was published between 1925 and 1932 and included volumes on Dame Laura Knight, Whistler, Frank Brangwyn, Alphonse Legros, and Ernest Stephen Lumsden amongst others.
The photogravures are mounted onto heavy cream stock paper and each completed sheet is 30cm x 24.5cm. Individual photogravures vary in size.
Have your prints mounted and backed by foamcore, ready for framing or gift giving.
Photogravure is an intaglio printmaking or photo-mechanical process where a copper plate is coated with a light-sensitive gelatin tissue which had been exposed to a film positive, and then etched, resulting in a high quality intaglio print that can reproduce the detail and continuous tones of a photograph. It is no longer commonly practiced.
