As the name already suggests, this is an engraving on linen, which is then covered with paint and printed mirror-image on paper. When creating a linocut, we have to think in the negative. The engraved surface does not absorb the color and remains after overprinting in the color of the background, or in the case of multi-color printing in the color of the previous layer. Perhaps the linocut technique may seem complicated to you, but believe me, you will get used to it very quickly.
Linocut is a graphic technique that began to be used among artists only in the 20th century, just after Frederic Walton invented lino, which was initially used only as a floor covering.
The linocut technique was very popular among German impressionists, e.g. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, but also among our important Czech illustrator, graphic artist, painter and writer Josef Čapek.
