Unique print pulled from a plate that already has an image incised into it, in contrast to a monotype, where the surface is unworked.
A type of surface printing by which an image is made with paint or ink on a surface and then transferred by contact to paper. Only one print can be made of each design.
This term is frequently used in place of 'monotype,' but there is a distinction between the two. A monoprint has some repeatable element that is a permanent part of the plate used to print it. An example of the repeatable element would be an incised line in the plate or an object glued to its surface. While the painted surface of the plate cannot be duplicated, the line or impression of the other element will remain the same through subsequent printings.
Ink is applied to a flat surface (traditionally a copperplate), typically by brushing it on or covering the entire plate and then wiping or daubing it away to create a design. While still damp the plate is run through a press, sometimes yielding two or three impressions. Impressions after the first are called "cognates."
A unique printmaking technique. The artist paints an image in printing ink on a sheet of metal, plexiglas, or other flat nonabsorbent surface and then runs it and a piece of paper through a press. Only one good impression can be made. Monotype is a synonym.
Oe-of-a-kind print which has been made unique through the addition of hand coloring, or some other added feature(s) after it was pulled from a prepared matrix. The basic image remains preserved in the matrix as a simple etching, engraving, and so on.
A print that has been altered by coloring the paper before printing or by varying each impression during or after printing. A monoprint derives all or part of its image from printing elements and may include collage elements and/or hand-coloring.
often confused with monotype, is produced by wiping or painting directly onto an already etched surface, woodblock, or lithographic and collographic plate. Rolling Stock Series No. 7, for Jim and Rolling Stock No. 22, for Bill illustrate this process.
The single, unique print produced by rubbing on a paper placed on an image freshly painted on a polished glass surface or metal plate.
a cross between a painting and a print
a one of a kind print achieved by applying colored inks to a smooth surface and then transferring that image to paper
a print created through any technique (lithograph, etching, woodblock, etc
a print made by any printing technique that the artist later alters
a single-print picture
a unique impression of ink transferred to paper from a plate upon which the image is painted
A series of prints each having differences of color, design, texture etc. which is applied to an underlying common image. Often considered synonymous with monotype.
one off print, often made by inking up a glass surface and pressing paper onto it. Each image is slightly different if process is repeated.
An impression on paper of a design painted on a surface, such as glass or a metal plate.
One print, that can not be duplicated, made by pressing paper onto an inked or painted surface.
A print of which only one image was ever made.
One of a series of prints in which each has differences of color, design, or texture applied to an underlying common image.
A print that has the same underlying common image, but different design, color or texture.
A single print pulled from a hard surface (such as a blank plate or stone) that has been prepared with a painted design. Each print is an individual artwork, as the original design is a transient one, lost in the printing process.
Also known as Monotype, is a print that is somewhat different from print to print due to variances in the inking. So although the image might be the same, unlike a numbered limited edition, each print has some differences and so is unique. Sometimes a monoprint is number 1/1.
This term means literally a single print. Usually prints are made in a series of edition, because initially, the media used were developed to produce repeatable images. A monoprint is produced in an edition of one unique image. Further prints may be taken from the plate or matrix, but after each printing the plate or matrix is altered to create a similar but not identical print. Any printing process may be used, but relief printing using glass or metal as a matrix is common.
A single impression pulled from a surface which has editionable qualities but where unique applications do not produce an edition.
mon. = Monotype A relief printing technique in which the image is transferred to the paper from the plate with colors.
A monotype using a repeatable printing element such as a woodblock, lithography plate or stencil.
a technique where a print produced by painting directly onto an already etched surface and printing the image by hand onto paper.
Unique print from a plate that has a repeatable image
A one-of-a-kind image made with successive printings of information. A monoprint is often made using a repeatable matrix in a non-repetitious fashion.
A one-of-a-kind print made by painting on a sheet or slab and transferring the still wet painting to a sheet of paper by a hand method; if the painting is done on a metal sheet, it may be run through a press.
A monotype combined with a partially worked etching, lithograph, screen print, or relief print. This technique produces a series of prints in which the worked image is constant but the monotype work is different in each impression.
A one-of-a-kind print made by painting on a sheet of glass or metal, and transferring the still-wet painting to a sheet of paper. Enough of the original paint remains on the plate after the transfer so that the same or different colors can be reapplied to make subsequent prints, but no two prints will be exactly alike.
Sometimes used interchangeably with monotype, a one-of-a-kind print made by painting or inking on a sheet of metal or glass and transferring the still wet painting to a sheet of paper by hand or with an etching press. If enough paint remains on the master plate, additional prints can be made, however, the reprint will have substantial variations from the original image. Monotype printing is not a multiple-replica process since each print is unique.
One-of-a-kind print conceived by the artist and printed by or under the artist's supervision.
