Works on paper

Smooth, crumpled, folded, scraped or altered in some other way, paper serves as the more or less docile prop of an increasing number of artistic expressions. Ranging from oil and acrylic paint to watercolors to India ink and gouache, and from lead pencil, charcoal and crayons to the most sophisticated mixed techniques, works on paper also include a variety of photographic techniques, used on their own or together with other techniques. Paper is furthermore the basic artefact used for the production of such multiples as engravings, prints and so forth.
