"Photogravure: Photographs in Ink"
2001-07-14 until 2001-11-11
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Photogravure is the most lavish process by which photographs are printed in printer's ink. Invented in the 19th
century, photogravure has been used by creative photographer-printmakers interested in the rich, continuous tones of
this intaglio process.
Photographers who have used this process include P. H. Emerson, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward S.
Curtis, Paul Strand, Lee Friedlander, and Bernice Ficek-Swenson. This exhibition features about 75 photogravures,
all from the Institute's permanent collection.
