RELIEF PRINT
HISTORY



Woodcutting as an art form began as early
as the 5th c.
Printmaking became popular in Germany in
the 15th c. with artists like Albrect Durer and
Hans Holbein
Woodcut was widely used in Japanese art
during the 18th c. Referred to as Ukiyo-e,
meaning “pictures of the floating world”

Characteristics of Woodcuts




Began as black and white images only, but
layering and colour were later used
Flat, solid shapes, dramatic colour, design
and composition
Historically used for theatre and portraits,
but primarily landscape and nature since
the 15th c
Plays on the use of positive and negative
space
Qualities and Techniques





The idea is to overlap transparent coloured areas, reinforced
with dark lines, details and shapes
Carve away the parts you want to stay the page colour
(white)
Lino is very similar to woodcut but it is easier to carve the
surface and it gives you more precision and a greater variety
of effects
Can have small or large editions, and there is no need to
destroy your plate because you work it away
Woodcut techniques: Bevelled carving (chiseling), denting,
scratching, poking. Used to add the appearance of shading
Process




Draw or paint preliminary image
Imprint the drawing FACEDOWN on the
block (reversing the image) so that the
result will be positive
Background is to be printed FIRST and
progress to the foreground until the final,
and most detailed, layer last
Always cut AWAY from yourself!!
