IDBURY PRINTS

The linocut became a popular method of relief printing after Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse demonstrated its artistic possibilities. Linoleum itself was developed as a flooring material in order to provide work for the factories that used to make sails for sailing ships, after the arrival of steam. Its artistic possibilities were first spotted by the Austrian art educator Franz Cisek; we have a number of linocuts by pupils of Cisek, listed under his name. We also list stenocuts under the term linocut. Stenocuts are very similar, but instead of linoleum they are cut into sandblast stencil tape, a product used by monumental masons. This rubbery material is softer and thinner than linoleum, making it possible to create plates with shaped edges. The process was invented by the American artist Sue Anne Bottomley. We have stenocuts by Emma Bradford.
