For these xylographies, Hartung will not classically engrave wood, a discipline far too slow for him. To keep the speed in the execution, it burns the support using various tools and brushes that are usually not handled by xylographs. With these tools, he proceeds by successive touches and strokes and gradually makes the whites appear by crushing the wood. The light points, like fireworks, create the composition. This process does not bear any repentance.
" ... If you could make your wood quickly - because I can't work slowly, I can't do it, I don't have the patience - I would have done like everyone else. I had to invent. I went to a carpentry, I asked for big pieces of wood, an axe, a big hammer, one of those with a big end and a finer, in a word, all the carpentry instruments. Then I went wild against the pieces that were given to me, which were well fixed - because otherwise they jump - and that's how I made the engravings." Source Fondation Hartung-Bergman
