A photogravure is a photographic image produced by a laborious and expensive process using a copper plate and light sensitive gelatin tissue. The image is then etched into the plate in a series of chemical baths in ferric chloride to produce an intaligio print with amazing tonal depth. The process was developed in the late nineteenth century and was the preferred method of the time for producing large quantities of high quality art prints.
