Pro Hart Reproductions

  • Aquatint is an etching process in which Pro Hart was concerned with tone rather than line.  For this technique, a plate is covered with particles of acid-resistant material such as resin and heated to make the particles stick.  The treated plate is then placed in an acid bath, which bites into the copper that is exposed between grains of resin, yielding a composition marked by texture and tone. There are only two etchings of “B.I.C Man” left in stock Image Size:  14 x 10cm Edition Size:  100 & personally signed by Pro Hart Finish:  Beautifully framed in a silver and white frame FREE SHIPPING TO QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC – All other locations please make an inquiry for our discounted shipping costs.

  • An etching begins with a metal plate (usually copper) that has been coated with a waxy substance called a “ground”.  Pro Hart would then create his composition by drawing through the ground to expose the metal.  The plate is then immersed int he acid bath, which “bites” or chemically dissolves the exposed lines.  For printing, the ground is removed, ink is introduced int he the incised lines, and the plate is wiped clean.  The plate is covered with a dampened paper and run through a press under great pressure in order to force the paper into the lines, resulting in the raised characteristic of etching.  To create the colour each etching is then hand painted. This is the last etching of “The Abandoned Mine” left in stock Image Size:  10 x 14cm Edition Size:  100 & personally signed by Pro Hart Finish:  Beautifully framed in a silver and white frame FREE SHIPPING TO QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC – All other locations please make an inquiry for our discounted shipping costs.
