SOLD "Afternoon Nude" Copperpoint on Panel 5x7"
Copperpoint on Panel
Copperpoint and Silverpoint drawings are created using a pure form of silver or copper wire and applied to a surface prepared with a ground. The technique is very slow and time consuming but results in exquisitely delicate drawings that will stand the test of time. This technique dates back to the early renaissance, many drawings by Albrecht Durer, Michelangelo and Da Vinci were in silverpoint. As the drawing ages, the metals tarnish and the drawing will deepen tones and develop over time.
This original includes a frame.
