In addition to the aquatints and lithographs, we published fully textured Carborundum Gravures printed on hand-made paper. The paper was developed for us, almost one half inch thick, by Robert Duchene in France who named the paper Nahan-Duchene. The beautiful gravures created by Coignard, Papart and Tobiasse show the most sophisticated use of this technique . This technique was developed by Henri Goetz who taught it to his good friends Miro, Clave, Papart and Coignard.
The curator of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France called our print making some of the most important being produced in France at that time.

An original graphic is considered genuine when the artist has personally worked on the plates, or worked directly in technical collaboration with a printer to produce the print. A For a detailed discussion and tips on collecting original prints, please view Ken´s Corner.
