Artwork Description:   This FINAL Edition of Four, number 1 of 5, was adapted from a silver print plate taken by my German Great-Grandfather in London. He photographed the scene while on a Thames River boat trip, which captures the Victorian London skyline draped in an early morning fog. A fishing boat is seen in the foreground and many reflections drift throughout the design. I employed two zinc plates to create the one printed image, and the plates required three baths in Nitric acid. Aquatint, intaglio, and drypoint were applied in this Last of Four Editions. Each edition is limited to only five etchings. Moreover, each of the four editions was executed in different ink colors printed on varying brands of etching papers. I hand printed and published this edition at The Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on July. I blended five oil base inks, all Charbonnel brand from Paris, and also added 24-karat gold dust. This unusual, created color adds an aura of reflected depth and shaded veiling to the etching. This also provides a subtle example of the visual poetry that resides within my works. The paper is Stonehenge black. Each zinc etching plate measured 4 inches high by 6 inches wide, or 10.160cm by 15.240cm. The image size is 6 inches wide by 8 inches high, or 15.240cm by 20.320cm. The unframed etching is 15 inches high by 11 inches wide, or 38.100cm by 27.940cm. 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 matt 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.
