Description

Malcolm Salaman comments about Lord's printing on page 2 of the "The Studio" publication "Masters of the Colour Print I - Elyse Lord" by Malcolm Salaman in 1927:

"The method was to draw the design with dry-point on a copper plate, and then, aquatinting the parts intended for colour, to paint those parts for one printing or more. Many of the early proofs were hand-wiped plate-printings, which gave clean, bright results, though comparatively harder than those of the rag-wipe used so adroitly in the later prints."
