This artwork, from my NEW ORLEANS series, incorporates the techniques of intaglio, drypoint, and aquatint. I executed the print in black oil-based printing ink on STONEHENGE GRAY paper. I used one plate to produce this image, which measured 5 inches wide by 4 inches high. The print measures 11 by 10 inches.

La Restaurant de la Louisiane, established in 1881 by Louis Bezaudin, has been the scene of many brilliant social affairs. The restaurant occupies one of the most interesting and beautiful buildings of New Orleans, the former mansion of the merchant prince Zacharie. It is a three-story structure, with white facade and green shutters balconies, edged with handsome ironwork, jut over the arched entrance and windows beneath. Inside, there is a succession of spacious rooms, with mirrored walls, crystal chandeliers, brocade draperies, and softly carpeted floors. Under the management of Fernand Alciatore, the French cuisine was brought to a rare perfection that attracted guests from far and near. La Louisianes guest-books are full of the names of people famous in the early years of the twentieth century. Some of the dishes featured by the restaurant are bisque ecrevisse Louisiane, canape crab Louisiane, redfish courtbouillon, turkey Rochambeau, filet de truite marguery, and baked Alaska. httpwww. historicamerica. netneworleanstestaurantsfrenchlalouisiane. html The work was hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
