More than any other style of engraving, ornamental motif lends itself to all of the possible techniques. The ornate motif can be obtained with light engraving followed by shading. The part that acts as the background can be deepened, thus giving a deep engraving. The ornate motif can also be used, as it often happens, as a “frame” to hunting, mythological or battle scenes. In this use, the aim is to underline and exalt, perhaps by means of contrast, the most important part of the work. It is clear that for engravings of a certain prestige the frame must be equal to the principal subject and if possible carried out by the same engraver who engraved the scene in order to have the same ‘touch’. It is best when there is a relationship between the scene and the embellishment. This is most readily achieved when all engraving is created by one engraver. The result is a homogenous work of exacting perfection.
