ⓘ Cliche verre

Cliche verre is a combination of painting with photography. In brief, it is a method of either etching, painting or drawing on a transparent surface, such as glass, thin paper or film and printing the resulting image on a light sensitive paper in a photographic darkroom. It is a process first practiced by a number of French painters during the early 19th century. The French landscape painter Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot was the best known of these. Some contemporary artists have developed techniques for achieving a variety of line, tone, texture and color by experimenting with film, frosted Mylar, paint and inks and a wide assortment of tools for painting, etching, scratching, rubbing and daubing. Scratching a negative is another form of cliche verre. Many ways to get different designs for a cliche verre is to print a design off of the computer onto transparent paper. Or even scan a photo onto transparent paper and alter it that way before exposing it.

Cliche verre is French. Cliche is a printing term: a printing plate cast from movable type; while verre means glass.

Cliche verre was one of the earliest forms of reproducing images before the advent of the camera. As a precursor to photography, cliche verre could accurately represent the original scene without the tonal variations available in modern day photography.
