Content The artistic and reproduction printing techniques undergo a constant development. Modern technology allows a great variety of relief, intaglio, lithography, screen and digital print. In the course the different techniques will be presented in their historical context and technical procedures. Their different methods and modern variations will be explained in detail.

The different techniques (artistic and reproduction) will be examined with original prints in magnification. Two participants will share a makroskope. Looking at the original prints the distinctive characteristics of each technique will be worked out and the identification exercised.

The two days provide an opportunity to look at a great number and variety of original prints under magnification and to exercise the identification of their techniques.
