The monotype. A medium characterized by spontaneity, discovery...
"Oh this is great."
and improvisation. Monotypes are made by drawing or painting on a smooth
surface and then transferring it to a sheet of paper using a press or another

wasn't until 1880 that American artists began exploring the medium; and,
over the past century, the monotype has been dramatically transformed.
