Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A relief print cut in linoleum, similar to woodcut. It was first used early in the 20th century and was taken up by Matisse in the late 1930s, and by Picasso, the majority of whose lino-cuts date from the late 1950s. Its cheapness and ease of use have meant that it has found particular popularity with amateurs and schools.
