REMOVAL OF THE DRAWING ON THE STONE AFTER PRINTING
Once the printing of the lithograph is finished, each drawing is systematically destroyed after use.
The lithographer puts down some hydrochloric acid directly on the stone.
Then this stone is grained in order to erase totally the drawing.
Its printing is only issued once and in compliance with the number of expected editions.
