Bromoil Fine Art Prints

A bromoil is a photographic process, developed around 1910, that results in a etching-like work of art.  Bromoils along with many other time-consuming art processes, have become a "lost art".  As photography has been automated, interest in the old alternative processes has waned leaving only a handful of bromoil artists.

A bromoil print is a labor intensive process, beginning with a black and white photograph.  The silver is removed through a bleaching and tanning chemical process.  Permanent lithograph ink is then stippled by brush onto the surface creating a one of a kind art image.  The black and white photographic image is transformed into a beautiful, painterly quality, fine art image.
