Description
Pierre Courtin began engraving in 1944. "Gravure no 123" was done in 1947 using a combination of engraving, roulette and embossing, where the plate is deeply bitten with acid and scraped so that the paper is pressed into a void when it is printed, the result being a 3-dimensional area. in 1950 Courtin began to evolve a personal method of creating sculptural prints.
