Artwork Description:

Jerry Di Falco created this unique visual with the employment of four individual zinc etching plates all placed simultaneously on the printing press bed in order to produce one single image. The scene features an historic building in New Orleans entitled THE CALBILDO. Moreover, this Di Falco trademark of using multiple plates to create one image gives the viewer an illusion that she or he is seeing this architectural scene though a window that contains four glass panes. This complex etching used the studio techniques of intaglio, aquatint, and drypoint. Each plate size measures six inches high by four inches wide and each also required four baths in nitric acid to etch the image into the metal. The overall size of the scene, including the separating-space between the plates while on the press bed, measures eight and a quarter inches wide by twelve and a quarter inches high. The paper, RivesBFK white and made in France, measures about fifteen inches high by eighteen inches high. The work is sold in an archival matt and wood and glass frame that is 24 inches high by 18 inches wide. The oil base French etching inks were a special created blend of three colors. The scene, based on three original drawings by the artist, was adapted from a 1999 photograph by a friend of the artist. This series will contain FIVE EDITIONS, with each edition limited to just FOUR ETCHINGS. Each edition is printed in a different color combination. NARRATIVE LINE After the Louisiana Purchase, this building, the Cabildo, housed governmental offices. From 1803 until 1812, the Louisiana territorial superior court sat there. From 1868 to 1910 the Louisiana Supreme Court resided here. The Cabildo, a National Historic Landmark on Jackson Square in New Orleans, has also served as an emergency hospital, a banquet hall, and as a home for various libraries, including the New Orleans Library Association in 1819 and the Law Association Library from 1847 until 1910. In 1911, the Louisiana State Museum moved in, where it and remains today. The price includes matt, frame, etching, shipment carton, bubble warp, plastic for waterproofing during shipment, a brown craft paper frame backing, and signed Certificate of Authenticity. This work was hand printed by the artist on a Charles Brand industrial press and published at The Center for Works on Paper’s Open Studio in Printmaking. This is part of The Fleisher Art School campus on Catharine and Christian Streets in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as is associated with The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
