|Descriptive Notes||Loring: prints in paste paper.|
This type of paste paper is created when a relief cut image (wood or metal for example) would be 'inked' with a colored paste, then printed.
In this particular case it is appropriate to paraphrase Hans Schmoller through Tanya Schmoller. Hand-made papers were brushed initially with a background color of starch paste, then those patterns printed with the same starch paste which desired fine dotted or linear details, difficult to cut in certain grain woods were accomplished by driving metal pins or shaped strips of brass or copper into the block of wood, type height.
This technique is not attributed to Remondini & Figli (Italian makers and purveyors of prints and engravings) by the Schmollers but is illustrated by a group of works and blocks found by them.
The primary colors for this example are blue, black and pink.
