In the 16th century, German artists discovered that by printing from one or more colour blocks in addition to the line block, they could create a dramatic interplay of light and shade – chiaroscuro. This magnificent volume brings together 130 woodcuts from Italy, Germany and the Netherlands, some by major artists such as Cranach, Beccafumi and Goltzius. Published to accompany an exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, it explains the development of the technique, and demonstrates the stunning effects it made possible.
