Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • caricature - Alternate Term
  • collotype - A type of photolithography in which the printing plate is prepared using a bichromate process. Unhardened gelatin areas hold water and thus resist greasy ink; hardened areas accept ink and hold it in the characteristic wormlike pattern of cracks. [March 1994 lead-in term deleted, was 'phototype'. April 1993 descriptor moved.]
  • Germany - TGN 7000084 ("state" carried for all German states to avoid ambiguities, e.g. re: “Berlin”)
  • photomontages - Use for combinations of photographic images, or photographic with other images, such as architectural drawings, usually arranged into a somewhat unified image. For photographs produced by printing two or more negatives as one unified image, use "composite photographs." When pieces of photographs or other relatively flat materials are pasted together into less unified images, use "collages." [April 1991 descriptor moved.]
  • politics
  • portfolios (groups of works) - Use when a group of works is brought together such as to exemplify the work of an artist or student, or if the works (usually by one artist) are issued or housed together in a portfolio.
