Antique and Vintage Works on Paper

For several artists, the freedom and spontaneity of working on paper sparked interest in this medium. This helped explore new approaches and aesthetics, themes, and processes. Used as an extremely diverse body in art, the paper was introduced in the 2nd century in China. When the paper was produced in the fifteenth century in Europe, it was extensively used as prints and manuscripts.

During this period, artists such as Leonardo da Vinci created art on paper to draft the concepts for their paintings and sculptures. From the twentieth century, the paper was considered more than just a draft, it was officially established as an art medium. Many artists incorporate several techniques that go beyond the traditional definition of paper media. Contemporary paper artworks showcase an innovative combination of textures and techniques, along with drawings on prints, collages, and paintings
