PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WORK INCLUDES A BLACK, WOOD FRAME AND WHITE, ACID FREE MAT. Jerry Di Falco’s original etching was created using one zinc plate etched in Nirtic acid. The work is limited to only FOUR Editions, and each hand printed edition is limited to only FIVE etchings. The artist used RivesBFK white paper from France and a personal blend of three oil base inks from Paris. Mulberry bark paper from Thailand was employed in the Chine colle process and infused with Japanese kozo threads from Japan. Di Falco pretreated this paper with his studio made methyl cellulose. The other etching methods included aquatint, intaglio, and drypoint. The etching plate measured six inches wide by four inches high and required four separate baths in Nitric Acid. The RivesBFK white paper measures eleven inches wide by ten inches high. Di Falco created, printed, and published this edition at The Center for Works on Paper, located at 705 Christian Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The framed and matted etching is professionally shipped. The frame is first wrapped between layers of acid-free glassine, placed between two cardboard pieces, securely packed with bubble wrap, and mailed in a cardboard carton. The ABSOLUTE ARTS DOT COM price covers all wrapping materials, handling fees, frame, mat, Certificate of Authenticity, and carton. This narrative scene was adapted from a 1950 photo of Camac Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, one of the oldest streets in the United States. The narrow alley like way obtained a rather colorful reputation by the 1890s due to the presence there of opium dens, brothels, gypsy tea leaf reading rooms, private art clubs, boarding houses for theater people, and gay bars. FRAME size is 11 inches high by 14 inches wide.
