Artwork Description:

This etching is print number one of five from the third and final edition. The scene is based on several original pencil drawings by the artist, which all depict a black and white photograph from the Temple University Libraries, Special Records Research Center. The narrative involves an elderly woman standing by her home at 1004 Kater Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1914. Kater Street is a narrow alley of central Philadelphia, located between South and Bainbridge Streets. This neighborhood housed both European-Americans and African-Americans that had fallen into decay during the 19th Century. This intimate print is a study for a larger etching CALLED “THE HERBALIST”. These works will become part of a portfolio of etchings devoted to the magical folk of Philadelphia before the 20th Century. The etching was executed on a zinc etching plate whose size was 4 inches by 6 inches. Three nitric acid baths were employed to arrive at the final design. Media included RivesBFK white paper and oil based etching inks from Paris. The work employs the studio techniques of intaglio, aquatint and drypoint. It is sold in an acid free mat, and the frame measures 12 inches high by 9 inches wide. The paper or print measures 10 inches by 11 inches. The price includes wrapping, frame, mat, Certificate of Authenticity, information about the artist, and packing carton. The framed work is first wrapped in heavy plastic to weatherproof it during shipment. DiFalco hand printed this etching on a Charles Brand industrial sized press, which was manufactured in New York City, New York. The artist published the three editions at The Center for Works on Paper, where he serves as a Studio Monitor and Mentor for the professional artists in the Open Studio In Printmaking. This program is associated with the Fleisher Art Memorial, which is the school of fine art connected to The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
