Printmaking Etching Techniques Used included Intaglio, Aquatint, and Drypoint. I used nine separate zinc plates to create this image. Each plate was two- nches wide by three inches high, or 2.54cm by 12.7cm. I lined the plates in three rows of three on the printing press to produce this work of multiple rectangular forms. I did this to counterbalance the square areas within the image itself, as well as to elongate the veiled female figure, which is the Guardian of the tomb of LAGARDE-GUERET in the Paris cemetery of Pere-Lachaise. This tomb was designed by artist Eugene Paul Benet, 1863-1942. My etching underscores the sacred geometric relationships within the Lagarge-Gueret tomb to the actual rectangular parameters of the borders. The forms also recall the shapes of books to me, which relates to the impressive literary collection of the family. The collection of Jeanne Lagarde Gueret was donated to the National Archives in Paris in 1936. I find it alluring that most of the books bear the following book cover insert, Odiate e aspettate, bookplate Jeanne Lagarde Gueret, which refers to the motto of Catherine de Medici, from Bibliotheque nationale de France. The overall size of the etched image is 6.5 inches wide 16cm by 9.5 inches high 23cm The print measures 11 inches wide by 15 inches high, 28cm x 38cm.
