The overall image size, including a small separation space between the top and bottom plates, measured 6-inches wide by 18.25-inches high16.240cm by 36.355cm. The print, executed on RivesBFK white etching paper, measured 24-inches high by 12-inches wide60.960cm x 30.480cm. A blend of French black etching inksCharbonnel brandwas employed. This work is from the FIRST EDITIONof FOUR EDITIONS , with all editions being limited to only four etchings. After the ink dried, Di Falco hand-painted his etchings with watercolorsWinsor Newton brand from the UK. The work ships to the collector in an archival mat and frameabout 28-inches by 16-inches, or 71.120cm by 40.640cm. Di Falco printed the etching by hand on a Charles Brand industrial printing press, made in New York City. He printed and published this series at The Center for Works on Paper within Fleisher Art’s Open Studio In PrintmakingPhiladelphia, Pennsylvania, US. The full title of Di Falco’s intaglio etching, which was enhanced and hand-painted with Windsor Newton watercolors, is, STAINED GLASS WINDOW, OUR LADY OF SLAVERY CATHEDRAL. This is the 2nd of 4 works in this edition, and each work is an original. The following information is from the website https www. bl. uk collection-items diagram-of-the-brookes-slave-shipand refers to the Diagram of The Brookes Slave Ship. Full titleThe History of the Rise, Progress, and Accomplishment of the Abolition of the African Slave-Trade by the British Parliament. Published 1808, London Format Print Image Creator Thomas ClarksonUsage terms Public Domain Held by British LibraryThis diagram of theBrookesslave ship is probably the most widely copied and powerful image used by those campaigning to abolish the slave trade in the late 18th century. Created in 1787, the image illustrates how enslaved Africans were transported to the Americas and depicts a slave ship loaded to its full capacity – 454 people crammed into the hold. TheBrookessailed the passage from Liverpool via the west coast of Africa to islands in the Caribbean. Thomas Clarkson commented in his History of the Rise, Progress, and Accomplishment of the Abolition of the African Slave Trade1808that theprint seemed to make an instantaneous impression of horror upon all who saw it, and was therefore instrumental, in consequence of the wide circulation given it, in serving the cause of the injured Africans. By April 1787, the diagram was widely known across the UK appearing in newspapers, pamphlets, books and even posters pasted on the walls of coffee-houses and taverns. An image had rarely been used as a campaigning tool in this way before. In the late 18th century, demand for luxury goods among rich and poor alike grew rapidly. Popular commodities such as tea and coffee, sugar, tobacco and cotton clothing were all produced by enslaved labour in the plantations of the Americas. This booming demand in turn acted as a stimulus to the transatlantic slave trade. Though the exact human toll will never be known, perhaps 2,500,000 enslaved Africans perished in the unimaginable conditions on the ships that crossed between Africa and colonies in the Americas between the 16th and 18th centuries.
