This hand pulled etching is based on an antique photograph taken by Giovanni Di Falco, the paternal grandfather of the artist, in 1889 at Mont San Michele in France. Jerry Di Falco executed two drawings in graphite of this photo before etching onto his zinc plate, which was then developed in three baths of Nitric acid. This specific etching is from the Third of Four Editions, and all editions are limited to only five prints.
