This intaglio etching used silver, oil base etching ink on Stonehenge black paper. It is from a series of etchings that deal with the ancient city of Pompeii. This specific visual is taken from a mosaic that survives today. Visual elements of my etchings include play of shadow and light, manipulation of optical effects via use of plate textures, and, a hard edge use of both line and geometric form. The actual image size is 6 high by 9 wide. The print or paper size is 11 by 15. I hand printed and published this edition at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Please note that this etching is shipped to the collector without a frame or mat. This keeps the price low and allows the collector personal choice in matt selection and framing. A sturdy cardboard box is employed for shipping the work. 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 carton and securely packed with bubble wrap. The Absolute Arts Dot Com price includes all handling costs, shipment supplies, and the coast of the shipment box. Mailing costs are added.
