Description
"Theorem" printing is a form of stencil printing developed in the early 19th century. Originally, the works were most often executed on white velvet, with various stencils weighted onto the fabric and dry brushed one at a time. The more skilled the artist, the more delicate and detailed the piece, with shading and layered colors.
