Art DictionaryA Brush With Greatness Glossary
A method created in the late eighteenth century, of printing from a prepared flat stone, or a plate. A drawing is made on the stone or plate with a greasy crayon or tusche, and then washed with water. When ink is applied it sticks to the greasy drawing is resisted by the wet surface allowing a print to be made of the drawing. The artist then covers the plate with a sheet of paper and runs both through a press under light pressure. For color lithography separate drawings are made for each color. George Catlin, Doris Lee, Grant Wood, Louis Lozowick, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Honoré Daumier were all masters of Lithography.

only to the design areas, and is repelled by the non-image areas.
Lithography was invented in 1798 in Solnhofen,
Germany by Alois Senefelder. The early history of
lithography is dominated by great French artists such
as Daumier and Delacroix, and later by Degas,
Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Braque and Mir6.
Art DictionaryGlossary of Art Terms
