Le Peyrou à MontpellierJean-Pierre Rossignol
Engraving - Intaglio print produced with a chisel and drypoint.
Deposited and listed at the BNF (National Library of France)
Formerly Place Royale, with its monumental triumphal arch, its ponds, its water tower and its statue of the King Louis XIV sculpted by Pierre Mazeline and Simon Hurtrelle, the Peyrou is the pride of the city of Montpellier (Hérault - France)
Using chisels with a triangular edge, the design is incised in a steel or copper plate. Thus, the pattern is made in hollow with its solid, its hairlines and its precision of the line.
There is no "repentance". The artist must have an absolute control of his gesture and the force of his pressure; his chisel removes at each impulse a metal chip corresponding to the value of the line, threadlike or fatter .
The particularity of the chisel is to collect the ink in the hollow of the line. The complete board is inked and then carefully wiped so as not to leave any ink remaining on the flat parts. The moistened sheet of paper is placed on the plate and powerfully applied by a press. The ink is transferred to the paper, which, by flexibility, has entered the recesses.
