Artwork Description:

THE PRICE OF THIS ETCHING INCLUDES A GOLD PAINTED WOOD FRAME WITH GLASS AND ACID FREE MAT. THE FRAME MEASURES 16 INCHES HIGH BY 20 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 was inspired by one of the printmaker’s 35mm color photographs taken in 1990the scene documents one of the city’s most unusual locations. DiFalco used the studio techniques of INTAGIO, AQUATINT, and DRYPOINT. Seven separate nitric acid baths were needed before the printmaker arrived at this desired design. Both hard and soft grounds were used on the zinc etching plate. The image illustrates 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. Work on the original temple began in Egypt near the beginning of the 2nd century BCE at the orders of the Meroë King Adijalamani, who built it as 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 finished the Temple’s construction. 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 was opened to the public in 1972 and has the city’s best sunrise view. This location also contains historical significance because it once housed the former Montaña barracks, a fascist stronghold that was stormed by the populace during the Civil War in 1936. Di Falco executed and hand printed this work in 2017 at The Center For Works on Paper, Fleisher Art campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. He employed an eight-inch high by ten-inch wide, or 20.320cm x 25.400cm zinc plate and printed with oil-based etching inks made in Paris, France on RivesBFK white printmaking paper. Frame is 16 inches by 20 inches.
