Artwork Description:

Full Title of this work is, “The Civil War’s Sunrise of Isis, Madrid”. THE PRICE OF THIS ETCHING INCLUDES A GOLD PAINTED WOOD FRAME WITH GLASS AND ACID FREE MAT. THE FRAME MEASURES 14 INCHES HIGH BY 11 INCHES WIDE. THE WHITE MAT CONTAINS A GOLD INNER TRIMMED EDGE. THE ARTWORK ARRIVES WIRED AND READY TO HANG ON YOUR WALL, AND A WALL HOOK AND NAIL ARE INCLUDED. This etching, inspired by a 1990 photograph taken in Madrid by the printmaker, was executed on an eight-inch high by ten-inch wide, or 20.320cm x 25.400cm zinc plate. It was hand printed in 2017 by Di Falco at The Center For Works on Paper, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. RivesBFK white paper was used. This Limited Edition print is from the FIRST EDITION of FOUR. Each edition of five etchings is executed on different printing papers using different colors of oil based ink. The techniques of INTAGIO, AQUATINT, CHINE COLLE, and DRYPOINT were employed. Seven separate nitric acid baths were needed before the printmaker arrived at the desired design. The story behind this Madrid location is complex. The etching shows the Egyptian Temple of Debod, which was donated to Spain in 1968 as a result of flooding from the Aswan Damn construction. This ancient temple was transported and rebuilt stone by stone in its current Spanish location. Works on the original temple began in Egypt at the beginning of the 2nd century BCE at the orders of the Meroë King Adijalamani, who built a chapel dedicated to the god Amun and the goddess Isis. Subsequent kings of the Ptolemaic dynasty built additional rooms around the original core. After Egypt’s annexation by Rome, the emperors Augustus and Tiberius, and possibly Hadrian too, finished off the Temple’s construction and decoration. In the 6th century CE following Nubia’s conversion to Christianity, the temple was sealed off and left abandoned. Now the Temple of Debod is located in Madrid’s Parque de Oeste, or Park of the East, near the Royal Palace. It opened to the public here in 1972 and has this Madrids best sunrise view. This area also contains historical significance because it once housed the former Montana barracks, a fascist stronghold that was stormed by the populace during the Civil War in 1936. This explains the artist’s title, “The Civil War’s Sunrise of Isis, Madrid”.
