This DOUBLE-PLATE etching takes its inspiration from a 1937-38 black and white print photo by lesbian photographer, Francis Benjamin Johnson 1864-1952. It pictures a back courtyard in New Orleans French Quarter on Gov Nichols Street. The work is executed in a rich violet mix of oil-based, Charbonnel Brand inks on RivesBFK white paper all manufactured in France. The image is etched on two individual zinc plates that each measure seven inches high by five inches wide. FIRST EDITION of Three Editions and each edition has only five etchings. Please note that this etching is shipped to the buyer without a frame or mat. This keeps the price reasonable and also allows the collector a wide range of choice in framing selection. For shipment, a sturdy cardboard box is employed. 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 box and securely packed with bubble wrap. The price does not include any shipment costs.
