Del. delin


Latin derivative from "delineavit", translated in English in means "he drew it". The term is used in printmaking following the name of an artist to signify that the artist was responsible for the original design, as distinct from being simply the engraver. "Inc" and "Sculp" refer to the person who engraved the plate, often different from the artist who did the original design. Source: Ralph Mayer, "A Dictionary of Art Terms and Techniques"
