Each print produced is considered an "original" work of art, and is correctly referred to as an "impression", not a "copy". Often impressions vary considerably, whether intentionally or not. The images on most prints are crea ...

Aquatint is an intaglio printmaking technique, a variant of etching that only produces areas of tone rather than lines.
