Intaglio vs. Relief Printing

As a review of what we talked about regarding intaglio and relief printing processes, it might be helpful to take a look at these videos made by the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. They provide a visual explanation for processes such as etching, aquatint, and drypoint (itaglio) and woodcutting (relief).



I’d also recommend taking a look at the Bamber Gascoigne book How To Identify Prints, which is on the reserve shelf at the Duke House.
