Historical Context:
Master print maker Takeshi Takahara uses the Intaglio process to produce his dramatically beautiful prints. A professor emeritus of print making and drawing at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design, Takahara prefers the process of print making as a medium because it allows him to develop and revise each piece in the process. Print making, unlike traditional printing, allows the artist to render a one-of-a-kind, dimensional print—no glass and no frame. He prints using Japanese gampi paper for its strength and transparency, applying it to curved wooden slats and sealing it with persimmon juice.
