About printmaking

Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing. A lot of talented artist have found their place in printmaking. It still exist after years and years of being discovered. The process is believed to have been invented by Daniel Hopfer . In the mid-nineteenth century, Philadelphia became a leading center of printmaking in the United States.There are four main categories  relief, intaglio, lithography, and screenprinting.

This piece of art is made by Pablo Picasso called  “Figure Composee I”. Pablo Picasso is arguably one of the most well known and influential artists of the 20th century Pablo Picasso created about 200 lithographs from 1945 to 1949. I like this piece of art because it is very abstract. You don't really know what it is when you first look at it. It tells it's own story. It is very unique and different. I wonder what was the real reason why he made this and what inspired. I noticed that he made the faces connect by the noses and the faces are long.
