This etching, entitled GUARDIANS, employs the techniques of aquatint, intaglio, and drypoint on one zinc plate, 4 inches high by 5 inches wide. The print size is 10n inches wide by 8 inches high, or25.5 cm x 21 cm. I used black oil based French etching ink on STONEHENGE natural printmaking paper for this limited first edition of ten prints. This image of gargoyles atop Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France, was based on a photograph I shot in 1987. The work was hand printed and published by the artist at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 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 mat 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.
