Artwork Description:

Di Falco’s original etching was inspired by a 1937 photograph by Francis Benjamin Johnson, born in 1864 and died in 1952, one of the first US women to gain success as a photographer. Johnson’s original negative is catalogued in the US Library of Congress, in Washington DC. It is a part of The Carnegie Survey of the Architecture of the South, Call Number LC-J7-LA- 1056P P. The scene features an 1835 building in New Orleans. The French Quarter house, located at 716 Dauphine Street, is supposedly haunted by ghosts and is known as THE HOUSE OF THE TURK. DiFalco executed his etching with a blend of metallic and colored oil base, French inks printed on RivesBFK white paper. The zinc plate measured fourteen inches high by eleven inches wide, or 28cm x 35.5cm and required five separate baths in nitric acid. THE PRICE INCLUDES BOTH A FRAME THAT MEASURES 26 INCHES HIGH BY 19 INCHES WIDE, AND AN ARCHIVAL MAT. The studio techniques included intaglio, aquatint, and drypoint.
