What is a photogravure?

Photogravure is a process for printing photographs onto paper by etching the photograph on a copper plate. The plate was inked and pressed to the paper. The process created fine art photographs which have a distinctive beautiful appearance. Photogravure was replaced by the daguerreotype process.

Postmodernism

Postmodernism is artwork which sought to make visual statements against authority, to remove boundaries between art and everyday life, and to bridge gaps between the cultural elite and popular masses. Art in this movement embraces many earlier conventions and styles in eclectic mixtures.

Avant-garde

Unusual and experimental ideas in arts or on the side of people introducing the ideas. The ideas push the boundaries or limits of what is accepted as the status quo or norm in the realm of culture. The movement is liked by artists and many of them continue doing it tracing Dada's history through situationists all the way to the post modern artists.
