Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • aquatint - An intaglio etching technique in which a metal plate is sprinkled with a finely-powdered resin (asphaltum, rosin, etc.); the plate is heated to melt the resin, then cooled, and placed in an acid bath. The acid lightly etches areas not covered with the resin. The results in a plate with fine pockmarks. The process was invented in the 1760s by J.B. LePrince. Aquatints were popular until the late 1830s.
  • beds - Generally, the sleeping places of humans and animals. Specifically, permanent pieces of furniture comprised of a bedstead, which is the wooden or metal support, and the bedding, including the mattress and cover.
  • etching - Intaglio process in which the design is worked into an acid-resistant substance coating the metal printing plate; the plate is then exposed to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed, to create lines and dark areas. For the single step of exposing the plate to acid, use "biting."
  • mythology - Genre and tradition concerning the study of a culture's body of myths, belonging to a particular religious or cultural tradition in an authoritative and official fashion and through symbolic narrative, iconography, or characterization, usually through the forms and personalities of deities.
