    "Identification of Prints"
    October: 20-21, 2014

    Language: English

Lecturer: Hildegard Homburger

Participants: 8

The artistic and reproduction printing techniques undergo a constant
development.  Modern technology allows a great variety of relief,
intaglio, lithography, screen and digital print.  Therefore the
artistic print is no longer reduced to the classical technique, but
artists are using the modern technologies.  By identifying prints we
are confronted with industrial and photomechanical techniques.

In the course the classical artistic techniques will be presented as
well as the industrial and photomechanical techniques in their
historical context and technical procedures.  Each technique with
her variations will be explained with slide lectures.

In the practical sessions original samples of the different
techniques will be examined under magnification.  Several
microscopes are provided.  Looking at the original prints the
distinctive characteristics of each technique will be worked out and
the identification exercised.

The two days provide an opportunity to look at a great number and
variety of original prints under magnification and to exercise the
identification of their techniques.
