Lithography Art For Sale – A Unique and Adaptive Medium
We are proud to present our remarkable collection of lithography paintings. This specialized art form involves drawing or painting the image with greasy creative mediums onto a smooth plate, to which ink is then applied and printed onto paper.
Lithography is a sought-after and powerful printmaking technique that has its roots in the late 18th century. Invented by German actor and playwright Alois Senefelder, lithography was initially used to produce offset lithograph prints, which are multiple identical copies of a piece, most often used for the commercial printing of books, newspapers and posters. That said, it was not long before lithography began to be explored as an inventive art form.
By the 19th century, lithographic technique had attracted leading artists such as Francisco de Goya, Honoré Daumier, and Eugène Delacroix, which gave lithography newfound respectability among artwork categories. The 20th century saw lithographic technique reach new heights in popularity with works from Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dalí being produced using the method. Today, it is still widely used by printmakers and continues to be a popular medium for fine art.
Lithography’s versatility makes it an attractive medium for artists who are looking to push creative boundaries. The images being drawn directly on the plate with litho crayons allows for a great degree of precision and detailing. It also gives artists the ability to explore different techniques such as scraping, burnishing, and etching to create a variety of textures and effects on the plate, which can be transferred to the print.
Lithography’s unique printing method, also makes it an interesting art form for artists interested in the idea of adaptation. Depending on the image size and paper size, the artist can create multiple original prints from one plate, each with its own unique variations and levels of detail. It makes for interesting limited edition series in which a particular idea can be explored from a variety of perspectives.
