This six plate etching offers a panoramic view from the Bergman film, The Seventh Seal. The techniques used include intaglio, drypoint, Chine collé, and aquatint. The work is executed in a rich black oil base ink on RivesBFK white paper, both manufactured in France. The pink/magenta color overlay was produced with the Chine collé process, which incorporated a hand dyed (deep red) mulberry bark paper from Thailand that is infused with kozo threads from Japan. Methyl cellulose was used in the actual printing process, which employed six etchings to make one image. The scene was executed on six individual zinc plates, which each measured 3 inches high, 7.6 cm, by 2 inches wide, 5 cm. A small space separates each plate. The work was hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Please note that this etching is shipped to the collector without a frame or mat. This allows the collector a wide personal choice in mat selection and framing, and also keeps the price reasonable. A sturdy cardboard box is employed for shipping the work to the buyer. The etching is first wrapped in two layers of acid free glassine tissue and then placed between two archival boards. This is next placed into the shipping carton and securely packed with bubble wrap. The SAATCHI price includes all handling costs, shipment supplies, the cost of the shipment box, and ALL mailing costs. The first two editions were printed four years ago; the artist waited to print the final two editions until the present astrological positioning arrived. This is from the Last edition.
