Lithography

 Page 1/1 

The lithographic motif is drawn by the artist himself directly on a smooth and flat special limestone with a bold color pencil or marker. During printing, the stone is kept moist with a fine layer of water, whereby the ink color only holds onto the sections drawn with the solid color (the basic principle is that the clouds are wet). Color printing uses one stone for each color. Numerous visual artists have worked with the technique, usually in collaboration with professional lithographs, who master the difficult and tedious printing technique.

Today, it is called a lithograph in the case of a signed quality print - regardless of whether the printing technique used may be offset printing, print or some third. An art print, which is issued in limited edition, numbered and signed, will today call a lithograph without taking into account the printing technique. However, we will always regard about the various printing forms on the individual works of art.
