Collotype printing (also called Photocollography) is a 19th century printing process that is considered one of the finest techniques for producing fine art images. It gives accurate reproduction because no halftone screen is employed to break the images into dots. In the process, a plate aluminum, glass, cellophane, etc. Is coated with a light-sensitive gelatin solution and exposed to light through a photographic negative. A collotype print is similar to a stone lithograph in many aspects. When properly executed collotype printing is capable of yielding prints which are difficult to distinguish from metal based photographic prints because of the microscopically fine reticulations which compose the image. It's possibilities for fine art photographs were first employed in the United States by Alfred Stieglitz.
Other non photographic artists used the process to produce "original" prints, most notably Marcel Duchamp and Max Ernst amongst others. Despite its unique and fine image fidelity, the labor intensive process and ensuing expense of the process caused it to give way in the latter half of the twentieth century to lower quality printing methods which were significantly less expensive.
