About

. 1862. Original cliché-verre. Counterproof. Delteil, Melot 145. 6 1/2 x 8 3/4 (image and sheet). Edition 150, #71. Posthumous impression from the 1921 edition of 150 printed in Paris by Sagot-Le Garrec on photo-sensitive vellum paper, with their violet seal verso (Lugt 1766a), with their violet seal verso (Lugt 1766a). Signed in the plate in reverse. Translated from French, 'cliché-verre' means glass picture. The 19th century French painters Corot, Millet, Daubigny and others, used this method of making pictures, which involves creating a hand made negative. These artists took pieces of flat glass, smoked them with a lit candle, and drew images in the soot-covered surface with a sharp pointed instrument. Then they would place the glass over a sheet of photographic paper and expose it to light. When light passes through the clear parts of the glass that is scratched, it produces a line drawing in black on a white background. Contact prints made from these negatives have a wonderful sense of belonging to the realms of both drawing and photography. The shot glass holds, by its very nature, both drawing, printmaking and photography. But it is above all a process of multiplication of the image based on the early days of photography. The cliché-verre is a printing process by photographic means, from a negative to done manually and by glass artist. The plate is first coated with a thick layer of collodion where the artist draws with a tip about it. The route passes through the translucent glass. The draw is obtained by the action of light passing through the glass and mark the photo-sensitive paper, which is then found and fixed. This technique, midway between printmaking and photography was invented in the 1850s by Constant Dutilleux and his son Charles Desavary.
