Original linocut, made using a reduction method.
A small varied edition of only 18 prints - they are all slightly different in colour so listed individually.
Reduction technique was popularised by Picasso as a way of making a multi-layered linocut from a single block. The block is carved and then printed in the first colour, it is then cleaned, carved again and printed in the second colour and so on. At each stage of the process the size of the printing area is reduced, hence the name. With this cutting method, the block of lino is destroyed in the process so the edition can never be reprinted. This linocut is printed with 12 colours over 5 layers.
