IDBURY PRINTS

A lithograph is printed from the flat plane of a lithographic stone (or sometimes a metal plate of zinc or aluminium), and hence lithographs are referred to as planographic prints (as opposed to relief or intaglio). The artist usually executes the image directly on the stone, although sometimes images created elsewhere are transferred from the paper used by the artist onto the stone by craftsmen. The principle behind lithographic printing is the natural repulsion between oil and water. The master printer of lithographs in the twentieth century was Fernand Mourlot, the printer of choice for Picasso, Bonnard, Matisse, and many others.
