SEATTLE ART MUSEUM GRAPHIC MASTERS: JUN – AUG 2016 (PART 2)

I’ve been back quite a few times. In this post I’ll share my crosshatching harvest.

Durer Caiphas

I’ll continue the review with the jewel-like Caiaphas print (so glad the curator included it even though it is not part of a series).

Straight up and down hatching – depicting a wall vertical to picture plane. See how it deviates slightly from using a ruler.

A woodcut. Anyone should be amazed that Durer cut tiny rhombi into the wood to make this hatching.

Look at how defined these hatched lines are. Could using a ruler have made a clearer depiction (it’s a rock)? I think not.

Goya Caprichio

Notice how painterly this hatching is. It is as if he was depicting brushstrokes.

Picasso mocks the whole hatching process. Brilliantly so.
