Artwork Description:

This etching was created with the techniques of intaglio and drypoint. It was executed in black French, oil based ink on RivesBFK white paper. The image was inspired by a still from the 1927 silent German film METROPOLIS. I etched the work on two separate zinc plates that each measure four inches high by five inches wide, or 10.160 cm by 12.700cmtherefore, the overall visual image measures eight inches high by four inches wide, or 20.320 cm by 12.700cm wide. The etchings plates are plated simultaneously on the printing press to create this “Etched Diptych”. The paper or print size is about twelve inches by ten inches wide, or 30.480cm by 25.400cm. Four separate nitric acid baths were required. I hand printed this work in 2017 at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia. This is a print from the LAST Edition of Four Editions, and each edition is limited to only five prints. The 1927 film by Fritz Lang, METROPOLIS, is one of the finest examples of German Expressionist cinemait contributed innovative levels of art to the future history of filmmaking. This marathon work blends science fiction with religion and politics and takes place in the future year of 2026 C. E. The work examines a larger than life urban environment ruled by billionaire industrials and corporate kings. The ingenious sets were heavily influenced by the artistic movements of Futurism, Cubism, and Bauhaus. The film’s script was written by Lang and Thea von Harbou. Actors include Gustav Frohlich, Brigitte Helm, Rudolf Klein-Rogge, and Alfred Abel. The poetically gothic special effects, like the sets, were unlike shown previously in the cinema. Keywords related to this etching include robot, science fiction, silent movie, 1927, German Expressionism, epic, German Cinema, black and white film, industrialists, Fritz Lang, class war, and futurism. Please note that this etching is shipped to the buyer without a frame or mat. This keeps the price reasonable and also allows the collector a wide range of choice in framing selection. For shipment, a sturdy cardboard box is employed. The etching is first wrapped in two layers of acid free glassine and then placed between two archival boards. This is next placed into the shipping box and securely packed with bubble wrap. The Absolute Arts Dot Com price does not include shipment costs, which are added to the final sale price.
