Exhibition of graphics from the funds of the Saint-Petersburg Academy of Arts
Being one of the most capacious, beautiful and flexible graphic techniques, etching opens practically inexhaustible possibilities in art of the image. In contrast to other equally respected prints (woodblock, lithography, linocut), etching has a special, deep picturesqueness and a very wide tonal range.
Etching is a kind of magic, the strength of which manifests itself at the final stage, when the received impression shows the conceived plus "something else." This "something" can be predicted or programmed only to a certain extent, but never to the end. The free nature of etching empowers him with such artistic qualities that distinguish only genuinely living, warm things.
