This etching was inspired by a 2012 photograph by the artist’s friend taken in England at Covington Cathedral. It shows a sculpture on the outside wall by Jacob Epstein, the same sculptor who carved Oscar Wilde’s gravestone in Paris, as well as the free standing bronze entitled, SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS, which is permanently installed at The Philadelphia Museum of Art in Pennsylvania, USA. This original etching was executed on a zinc plate by Jerry Gerard DiFalco and manually printed on a Charles Brand flatbed press at The Center for Works on Paper, located on the Fleisher Art campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. The artist incorporated the etching techniques of Intaglio, Aquatint, Chine collé, and Drypoint. The media includes a blend of four oil based etching inks with 24-karat gold dust on RivesBFK white paper, all manufactured in France. Mulberry bark paper from Thailand and graphite are also included. Five nitric acid baths were required to obtain the final design. This is the best print of five prints in the LAST of FOUR Editions, which is noted on the etching as 1 over 5 separated by a semicolon and followed by the Roman numbers of one over four. The image size corresponds to the etching plate size of six inches wide by nine inches high, or 15.240cm by 22.860 cm. The framed and matted work measures about 12 inches by 16 inches.
