Pochoir is a french technique of artist’s printmaking using stencils to create an image and pull an edition. It was popular between 1870 and 1930 when it was replaced by lithography. It was used by Matisse, Picasso, Sonia Delaunay and Kees van Dongen. Pochoir was used to “fill in” colors of early lithos and other linear printing methods. In Roy’s work, it was a natural outgrowth of Painting with stencils as he could use pochoir to create multiples without a press with acrylic paints. Though the demonstration will be non-onbective in nature, poichoir can easily be adapted to realism and abstraction.
