Definitions for "LINOLEUM CUT"
or linocut, is produced by incising the surface of a linoleum block. Like the woodcut, it is a relief process in which the raised areas are inked and printed. Linoleum is softer than wood and permits easier cutting for finer, more fluid lines. See Don't Walk from the Barrera-Rosa's series for an example.
A relief print carved into linoleum rather than wood.
A print image made by inking a block of carved linoleum (made of a backing of burlap or canvas coated with linoxyn) and pressing it to paper or other surfaces
