    The Beauty of an Aquatint7KHJUHDWHVWDUWLVWVPDNHSULQWV)RUWKHPLWLVDJUHDWHOGRIexploration, a different and subtle means of expression, writes Kelly Wenham.

    The aquatint came to life at the hands of painter and printmaker Jan van de Veld in 1650 while looking for a print SURFHVVWKDWZRXOGJLYHPRUHGHQLWLRQDQGGHOLFDF\WRKLVprints.

    The aquatint was named for the effects it creates, which look like ink or watercolour washes. The technique can be used to produce shaded areas in a printed etching that range from OLJKWWRGDUNDQGLVXVHIXOLQJXUHVWXGLHVSRUWUDLWVRUODQG-scapes where atmospheric tones create realism and drama.

    It became the medium of masterpieces in the hands of the great Spanish painter Francisco Goya. After starting his etchings with brittle but assertive lines, Goya proceeded to cloak them in haunting aquatint shadows. A graphic artist of astounding ingenuity and sensitivity, Goya created four great cycles of etchings to which aquatint contributed emotional depth. In more recent years, it has been used by artists such as David Hockney.

    The process begins with a copper or zinc plate being covered with rosin which resists acid. The plate must be heated to adhere the rosin particles. The artist then paints varnish or asphalt (tar) on the parts of the plate where an image is not wanted, and the plate is submerged in acid.The acid bites around each tiny grain of rosin. The deeper the bite, the more ink is held in the plate and the darker the tones will be in the print.

    If the artist paints a liquid soap mixture on the plate instead of varnish to protect parts of the plate from the acid, the soap breaks down in the acid, creating irregular tones.

    Made up of fantastic limited edition abstract aquatints, each piece has earned its place in this distinctive TROWBRIDGE collection for its beautiful abstract simplicity.

    This beauty is enhanced by the sympathetic use of aquatinting as the chosen medium, which is able to produce

    the delicacy and detail the artist would normally have created using watercolours, oils, charcoal or pencil.

    To add to the uniqueness of this archive, all the aquatints are limited edition pieces, some from editions as small as nine.

    As you would expect, we have chosen to be sympathetic with our framing to keep the focus squarely on the artwork.
