This First Edition Etching was originally entitled, My Fathers Country and Yacht Club, 1929, in the Italian U. S. Ghetto of Camden, New Jersey. Oil based French inks, a mix of three colors, was printed on on RivesBFK white paper, also French. Studio techinques included intaglio, aquatint, and dry point. The wiping techniques give the work a decidedly painterly feel. This work was printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper, which is on the Philadelphia campus of The Fleisher Art Memorial. Six separate baths in Nitric acid were required. The overall image size, or zinc plate size, is about ten-inches high by eight-inches wide.
