Details

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. Published to accompany an exhibition at London’s Royal Academy, this volume explains the development of the technique, demonstrates the effects it made possible, and presents 130 woodcuts from Italy, Germany and the Netherlands, including some by major artists such as Cranach, Beccafumi and Goltzius.
