Aquatint is an intaglio printmaking technique, a variant of etching. Intaglio printmaking makes marks on the matrix (in the case of aquatint, a copper or zinc plate) that are capable of holding ink. The inked plate is passed through a printing press together with a sheet of paper, resulting in a transfer of the ink to the paper.
They are a mixed media with gilding on prepared hessian canvas which is mounted onto boards. The paintings are in the Art Nouveau style, circa 1890 and are possibly by painted by Joshua Clarke (father of Harry Clarke).
