Gloss:
Sharp experimented with printmaking. In the etching process, the artist draws his design on a plate covered with a specially prepared ground. Then he dips the plate in acid and the acid bites lines where he has drawn. The plate is inked, so the ink goes into the lines. Paper is pressed against the plate under pressure and thus the lines are trasferred onto the paper, producing an etching.
