Artwork Description:

The 2nd and 3rd editions of this print were printed and published in 2017. The image is this intaglio and drypoint etching is based on a detail within an 1851 engraving by Alfred Rethel, who created the work based on the poetry of Heinrich Heine. Alfred Rethel executed the image of Death as a hooded skeleton playing a violin. Moreover, this related to the fatal cholera outbreak at the Paris Carnival of 1832. As you can see, the violin is constructed from the bones of dead humans. This intimate print from Jerry Di Falco uses two etching plates, which are positioned on the printing press in a vertical diptych format with a separating space between them. The individual zinc plates measure 3 inches high by 2 inches wide, or 7.6 cm x 5.08 cm, and the overall image size is slightly over 6.5 inches high by 2 inches wide, or 16.5 cm x 5.08 cm. The paper measures about eleven by nine inches, or 28 cm x 23 cm. This is the FOURTH of FIVE Editionsmoreover, each edition is limited to only five prints.
