Art Description

Printmaking: Aquatint, Etching, Drypoint, Oil and Ink on Paper and Other.

ITALIAN GHETTO1929 CAMDEN NJ
THIS IS THE THIRD EDITION OF THIS ETCHING; PRINT NUMBER ONE OF FIVE.

This THIRD Edition Etching, of Four Editions, was executed in oil-based French inks (mix of six colors) on STONEHENGE cream colored paper. I used the techniques of intaglio, aquatint, and drypoint; moreover, I hand printed the works in 2017 at The Center for Works on Paper, which is on the Philadelphia campus of The Fleisher Art Memorial.

Six separate baths were needed in a Nitric Acid Solution to arrive at my final, desired image. The overall “image” size (or zinc plate size) is about ten-inches high by eight-inches wide. The print size is about 15 by 12 inches. It was inspired by a black and white photograph from the US Archives.

THIS PRICE INCLUDES THE MATTED ETCHING IN AN ARCHIVAL MAT; A GLASS & WOOD FRAME (Type – Edge/ Semi-Ornate) 12 INCHES BY 16 INCHES, COLOR - GOLD); ALL HANDLING COSTS; SHIPMENT COSTS; CARDBOARD SHIPMENT CARTON; BUBBLE WRAP/PACKING MATERIALS; AND, CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY. The work is wired and ready to hang. Framing includes a brown craft paper backing. A wall hook and nail are included.
