The following works are DRYPOINTS.
“Drypoint” is a printmaking technique in which the drawing is directly incised into a plate (copper or zinc) with a sharp and hard-pointed metal “needle”. The lines produced by printing the plate are formed by the burr thrown up at the edge of the incised lines. Because the pressure of printing quickly destroys the burr, drypoint prints can only be made in limited editions; as few as ten or twenty impressions with burr can be made.
