Silverpoint pre-dates the pencil as a drawing medium and reached its height during the Renaissance, though some of the earliest drawings date to the 12th century. The artist draws with a silver stylus on a coated surface; the lines deposited are actually silver and will tarnish over time to a sepia tone. To learn more about Silverpoint please visit my website.
For this drawing I prepared the paper with a green-gray tone and used white charcoal highlights. The buyer will receive this drawing matted and protected in clear acetate. A Silverpoint Description card will accompany it.
