This etching was hand printed by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, a part of The Fleisher Art Memorial’s OPEN STUDIO IN PRINTMAKING FOR PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS. The work was executed on a zinc plate and incorporates the studio techniques of Intaglio and Aquatint; THE ARTIST USED BOTH HARD AND SOFT LIQUID AND BALL GROUNDS ON THE PLATE. Five separate baths in Nitric acid and water were used to achieve the desired image, which was inspired by a 1929 photograph of Wilheim Bendow, a performance artist in the Berlin cabaret scene. This is the first work in a series of etchings devoted to the German form of Performing Arts in the 1920s and early 1930s called CABARET. This form of music theater was on Europe s cutting edge of the Avant Garde and coincides with the German Expressionist movements in Visual Art, Literature, and Expressionist Film. Cabaret was also an area in which both class- and gender-roles were explored via satire. The image size corresponds to the etching plate’s size of six inches wide by nine inches high or 15.240cm by 22.860 cm. The RivesBFK white printmaking paper was hand torn to a size of about eleven inches by fifteen inches or 27.940cm by 38.100cm. The artist created a blend of ten inks for this two-toned edition, the LAST of FOUR. All four editions are limited to just FIVE etchings each, and the inks are oil-based (Both inks and paper were manufactured in France). This print is number 2 of 5. Print Number 4 of Five is also featured in details. Please Note that Print Number five from this edition (5/5; IV/IV) was sold in November of 2017 to a collector in San Francisco. The Saatchi price includes the costs for all handling, the shipment carton, bubble wrap, mat, frame, Certificate of Authenticity, and regular domestic (US) shipment costs.
