RA Collection: People and Organisations
Carl Hentschel (1864-1930) was a leading figure in illustrative print technology at the turn of the 20th century. Born in Lodz, Poland, Hentschel immigrated to England with his parents at an early age and studied the print trade under the tutelage of his father. He eventually went on to invent the Hentschel-Colourtype process and to found Carl Hentschel, Limited, a reproduction firm that produced engravings for numerous forms of printed media.
