Art Description

Printmaking: Etching, Ink, Ink on Paper, Other.

This double-plated etching in color inks was manually printed by the artist. This "SECOND edition of only FIVE original etchings represents the famous "Jersey Shore" Icon by the Atlantic Ocean of Lucy the Elephant in Margate, New Jersey (just south of Atlantic City). The artist spent many summers of his childhood here. This photo was taken by the artist in 2013. 

The following QUOTE about this iconic landmark is from- http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story. 
 "Lucy is the world's largest elephant, and the only one in America designated as a National Historic Landmark.
 She was built in 1881 by James V. Lafferty, a real estate developer with a knack for promotion. Standing six stories tall, weighing 90 tons, covered with 12,000 square feet of sheet tin, Lucy was more than an object of awe -- she was a functioning building, serving first as a real estate office, as a summer home, even briefly as a tavern, until unruly drunks nearly burned her down. She also gave people a reason to come to Margate City while Lafferty gave his real estate pitch."

The etching is executed on two zinc plates, each one measuring eight-inches high by ten-inches wide (20.320cm by 25.400cm); the overall image size is sixteen-and-one-quarter-inches high by ten-inches wide (almost 41.000 cm by 25.400cm wide). The print measures twenty-two-inches high by fifteen inches wide (55.880 cm x 38.100 cm wide).

THIS PRICE INCLUDES: THE MATTED ETCHING IN AN ARCHIVAL MAT; A FRAME (18 inch x 24 inch, Type – Glass & Wood Edge / Semi-Ornate Style, Color - White); ALL HANDLING COSTS; SHIPMENT COSTS; CARDBOARD SHIPMENT CARTON; BUBBLE WRAP & OTHER PACKING MATERIALS; AND, A 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.
