Graphic arts - graphics

DEFINITION

Terms referring to multiple replica arts in which original prints are created with lines, marks, or other characteristics on a flat surface, usually paper. Processes include aquatint, drypoint, etching, line engraving, lithography, mezzotint, monotype, serigraphy, stipple engraving, woodcuts, wood engravings, and mixed media where several of these methods are combined. "A trend of the late 1960s is to shorten the term graphic arts to graphics, which refers not only to the techniques but also to the individual prints." Sources: Julia M. Ehresmann, "The Pocket Dictionary of Art Terms"; Ralph Mayer, A Dictionary of Art Terms and Techniques"
