Since the 1820s lithography has had a rich history of being used by artists beginning with Delacroix, Géricault and Goya. Henri Toulouse-Lautrec was famous for the lithograph posters he created in the 1880s and 90s, and artists such as Juan Miró, Pablo Picasso, David Hockney and Robert Rauschenberg continued used the technique throughout the twentieth century.
