Dramatic author without success, he seeks to print his music in a more typical and more economical way than the work on copper. He uses the munich stone, which allows him to experiment with a flat technique that does not fit in the hollow or the relief.
He discovered as a result of chance the process of lithography. \Lithography is a printing process on stone or zinc plate previously grained and more malleable. This process is based on a chemical preparation of the support on which the artist drew using an ink or a lithographic pencil.
The chemical preparation allows the ink to remain deposited only on the drawn part of the stone or zinc, the other party refusing it. The principle is therefore based on the incompatibility of a fatty substance and an acidic body. Subsequently, the artists seized this technique which at first was part of the black with multiple shimmers (daumier) to quickly open on the colors (Toulouse-lautrec, Impressionists, Chagall, Picasso). A color lithography requires as many stones (or zinc) as there are colors in the composition: 13 colors mean 13 press passages of the same lithography.
Each color takes its place on the stamp following very precise landmarks. The overlays of tones allow to widen the palette and its nuances. Specially designed tones (transparencies, opacities) presuppose a great knowledge of these laws and a sense of technical decomposition on the part of the artist referring to a specific graphic approach. The numbering of lithographs also deserves some explanation. Encrypted annotations, Roman or Arabic numerals, are in the form of a fraction iii / cl: 120/150 etc.The denominator of this fraction specifies the importance of the draw, that is to say the number of depressions printed with the same support; in the example above, the figure of 150 or 150 indicates that the print run was 150 copies. The numbers iii and 120 mean that we have before us the test n ° 3 and the test n ° 120. This does not imply that we are in the presence of the 3. To the printing, the drying and the examination (operation during the course of which the proofs not conforming to the proof of print are destroyed) as well as the numbering and the signature, the proofs are several times mixed and nobody can be sure of the order of birth. It is extremely important to specify that the drawing is completed, examined and accepted piece by piece by the artist, who immediately erases the lithographic stone.
