Printmaking: Aquatint, Drypoint, Etching, Ink, Paper on Paper, Other.
This etching was inspired by an albumin print created between 1865 and 1886 in Paris, France. I found this photo in The A. D. White Architectural Photographs Collection, Rare & Manuscript Collections, at Cornell University (Accession Number 15/5/3090.01449). The image shows the door of Notre Dame Cathedral. I printed the work by hand using French, oil-based inks on British Stonehenge brand paper (color - Cream). My etching techniques included intaglio, aquatint, and drypoint. This First Edition of Three Editions was executed in a blend of blue colors and contains only FIVE prints. The image size is 10 inches high by 8 inches wide (25.400 cm by 20.320 cm); over ten Nitric acid baths were required to obtain the final result of light and shadow. The paper (print) size measures 15 inches high by 12 inches wide (38.100cm by 30.480cm).
THIS PRICE INCLUDES: THE MATTED ETCHING IN AN ARCHIVAL MAT; A FRAME (20 inch x 16 inch, Type – Glass & Wood Edge / Semi-Ornate Style, Color - Silver); ALL HANDLING COSTS; SHIPMENT COSTS; CARDBOARD SHIPMENT CARTON; BUBBLE WRAP & OTHER PACKING MATERIALS; AND, A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY.
