Artwork Description:

The studio techniques of Chine Colle, Drypoint, Intaglio, and Aquatint were employed in this etching. DiFalco used the media of oil base etching ink from Paris, RivesBFK white paper, and mulberry bark paper from Thailand that was treated with methyl cellulose and infused with kozo threads from Japan. The work was etched on a zinc plate coated with a liquid hard ground of beeswax, oil of spike lavender, and mineral spirits. Four Nitric acid baths were required to finish the plate. The image size is 6 inches high by 8 inches wide, or 15.240cm x 20.320cm, whereas the print size measures 11 inches high by 15 inches wide, or 27.940cm x 38.100cm. The wood and glass frame is about 11 inches by 14 inches. This etching was executed in FOUR EDITIONS, with each limited to five prints. This work, from the Third edition, is Print Number Two of Five. The artist published and printed the works on an industrial CHARLES BRAND floor model printing press at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The scene originated from original graphic drawings by the artist. These drawings were inspired by a publicity photo from the three Jean Cocteau films, entitled THE ORPHIC TRILOGY, which included the films entitled, The Blood of a Poet, Orpheus, and, The Testament of Orpheus. Vital elements in these French films involve life’s origin, and Cocteau called this key interest, “phoenixology”. Cocteau explained that this term, which he allegedly borrowed from the surrealist artist Dali, was, “the science of people’s death and rebirth”. The notions within pheonixology are no less vague upon further study. But however inflexible, the concept remains crucial in understanding Cocteau and his artistic goals. In short,THE ORPHIC TRILOGY focuses upon the life and death of the Poet. The filmmaking techniques of Jean Cocteau broke new ground in the cinema, and elevated film to an art form on the same level as sculpture or painting or poetic storytelling. This price includes the etching, an archival mat, and a wood and glass frame painted gold. Also included are all handling costs, packing fees, shipment carton, plastic wrap for waterproofing. and a signed Certificated of Authenticity. Please note that the term Chine Colle, which is pronounced Sheēn Kō-lay, translates from French to Chinese Pasting. The infatuation with Jean Cocteau began after DiFalco viewed the film BEAUTY AND THE BEAST in the summer of 1971 at The Theater of Living Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Please note that the fifth print from this third edition is already sold.
