Description

Around 1853 a few artists and photography buffs who were searching for a photographic method of producing multiple prints developed the cliché-verre. A glass plate is coated with an opaque ground through which the design is drawn with a sharp instrument. The plate is then placed on top of a sheet of light-sensitive paper and exposed to light so that the image is reproduced on the paper.
