This etching shows the sculpture that was created to celebrate 150 years of Italian Unity. It incorporates the techniques of intaglio and aquatint. There are three editions of ten prints each for this work, which was exhibited at the Italian Consulate in Philadelphia to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italia as a unified country. This sculpture by Carlo Fontana depicts the Angel of Unity in a special chariot called a QUADRIGA, which requires four horses to pull it. This first edition is executed on Arches Cover Black printmaking paper with silver-metallic, oil-base printing ink. The print measures 19 inches wide by 17 inches high. The work was hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Please note that this etching is shipped to the collector without a frame or mat.
