The Monotype process is not a new one. Rembrandt is often credited with creating elements of “monotype” in his use of ink on incised areas of his etching plates. Caravaggio and Degas, too, have worked with the process. But in the 1640s, it is written, Giovanni Castiglione printed from inks laid upon plates entirely without incised line, producing what may be the first true “monotype.”
