IDBURY PRINTS

A drypoint (pointe-sèche) is an intaglio print made by scoring a drawing into a metal plate (often copper) with a drypoint needle, usually tipped with a diamond. It is unlike an engraving in that the engraver's burin actually scoops out metal from the plate, while the drypoint needle simpy indents it, raising a characteristic burr either side of the line; sometimes this burr is removed to give a smoother look. Artists often use a drypoint needle to add final touches to an etching or engraving. We hold drypoints by Pierre Bonnard, Charles-Auguste Edelmann, Paul-Émile Bécat, Mariette Lydis, Malo Renault, and others.
