An engraving on wood; also, a print from it. Same as Wood cut, under Wood.
Plank of wood that is inked on the surface to reveal arelief image or texture. CUts gouge marks, and indentations do not print and show as white.
a relief printing technique where the image is cut into a wood block using tools such as chisels, gauges and knives. the wood is then inked and pressed onto paper (on a press or by hand), causing the raised areas to be printed, while the parts that have been cut away appear blank. woodcut blocks are cut along the grain of the wood, as opposed to wood engraving, which uses the end grain.
relief printmaking method. The design is cut with a knife or v-shaped gouge into plank wood with the grain. Chisels and gouges are used to remove large areas of background and ink is then applied to the raised surfaces. Historically the oldest printmaking method. See woodblock, linocut, and block print.
The oldest method of producing printing forms. The base material is a block of hard wood. Various cutting tools are used to cut out the parts of a pre-sketched image which are to appear clear or uninked. The parts which remain produce the image. The earliest known woodcuts for reproduction on paper date from the sixth century AD in China. The Buxheim Christopherus of 1423 is the oldest dated woodcut in Europe. It is believed that playing cards were printed using woodcuts in the 14th century in Europe.
A relief printing technique in which the printing surface is carved with special tools in a solid block of wood. The wood is cut longitudinally from the tree so the grain runs the length of the block. The block is cut and then inked with a brayer or dabber. The paper is then placed in the block and the whole thing is run through a press or rubbed over by a baren or the bowl of a large spoon. The oldest prints from wood blocks are playing cards.
A block of wood which is engraved for printing, or the resulting product from its use.
A method of relief printing in which wood is the printing element. The artist's design is either drawn directly on the block of wood or on a sheet of paper that is adhered to its surface. A variety of cutting tools can be used to carve away the non-printing areas. When finished, the image will appear as a network of lines and shapes standing out in relief, which are then inked and printed.
In printmaking, a relief technique where the image or design is left raised above what is carved out of the wood. What is not carved is printed.
The design to be printed is carved in relief on the surface of a block of hard wood. When the block is inked the ink adheres to the raised lines on the block's surface. The block can then be printed in the same press as letterpress type.
Relief print made by cutting the image into the broadside grain of a wood block using a woodcutter's knives and tools.
an engraving made from a woodcut
engraving consisting of a block of wood with a design cut into it; used to make prints
Cameo design cut out of wood on which the ink sticks to the raised surface to be transferred to the paper during printing.
The oldest form of relief printing, in which portions of a woodblock are cut away using knives, gouges, and chisels. Ink is rolled over the elevated areas of the block, and absorbent paper is pressed onto the surface, transferring the image.
a relief process in which the image is cut into the flat surface of a block of wood, usually pine although other materials such as plywood can be used. Areas not to be printed are removed and the wood is carved with the grain. Printing is from the remaining raised surfaces.
(English) A print made from a wooden block whose surface design would be rubbed with ink and then stamped onto paper.
A print made by cutting a design in the side grain of a block of wood, then inking and pressing to paper.
A relief print usually carved in the plank grain of a piece of wood. After the relief image has been carved in the plank with knives or gouges it is inked with a dauber or roller. It can then be printed by hand (in which case a sheet of paper is laid down on the inked plank and rubbed from the back with a smooth surface such as the palm of the hand or a wooden spoon) or with the help of a mechanical press.
Illustrations produced when the original printing plate was engraved on a block of wood. One of the oldest methods of printing, dating back to 8th century China.
Woodcuts are carved on the plank side of the wood, with the grain. Fine detail is difficult to achieve. Every part of the wood surface is removed except the lines of the image. When the block is completed, the image stands up as a level surface in relief.
An image made by printing from a wooden block on which a mirror image of the design has been carved. Woodcut maps are most often associated with the earliest days of map-making, up to about 1600, but many examples are found well into the 18th-century and later, often as text illustrations.
Relief printing where the design is cut into a wooden board, usually a softwood. Also called woodblock.
A block of wood with a design carved into it and non-printing areas cut away. The woodcut is inked and pressed against stock to make an image.
The areas around each line are cut out of the block of wood so that the lines to be printed stand out in relief.
Or wood cut. An image created by cutting into wood along the grain. In printing, ink stands on the raised image and a page is pressed onto it.
A print made by carving out a design on a wood block cut along the grain, applying ink to the raised surfaces which remain, and printing from those. The spaces between the lines may be colored by hand, or as in the case with many Japanese woodcuts, by using separate blocks for one or more colors.
(gravure sur bois, taille d'epargne, Holzschnitt) The earliest of the relief processes. Ages ago, the artist made the design with a quill pen directly onto a block of wood that would be cut by a craftsman ( Formschneider). Today the designer would undertaqke both tasks.
A style of illustration in which lines of varying thickness are cut in relief on plank-grain wood for the purpose of making prints. The same effect can be achieved digitally in a drawing program.
An engraving cut by a skilled artisan into a block of wood, which was then inked and printed, the earliest and most common early form of book and periodical illustration, which antedates priniting by movable type. Woodcuts were not fully replaced in newspapers by photographs until this century. Many are superb works of art in miniature, highly prized by collectors. Winslow Homer and Frederick Remington are two famous and highly collectible artists whose work appeared in woodcut format in contemporary newspapers and magazines.
Printing technique in which the printing surface has been carved from a block of wood. The traditional wood block is seasoned hardwood such as apple, beech, or sycamore. A modern trend, however, is to use more inexpensive and easily attainable soft woods such as pine. Woodcut is one of the oldest forms of printing. It was first used by the Chinese in the 12th century and later in Europe toward the end of the 14th century. In the picture you can see a wood block, belonging to a private collection in Switzerland. It is a drawing by Daumier entitled “Au buffet de l'Exposition des Beaux-Arts: Amour de l'Art et de la Côtelette” of June 20, 1868, for « Le Monde Illustré ».
