This artwork, from my MYSTICAL PLACES series, includes the ETCHING techniques of intaglio, drypoint, and aquatint. I executed the print with metallic oil-based etching ink, Charbonnel brand from France, on STONEHENGE black paper. What makes this etching special involves the fact that I used four separate inked zinc plates lined, all horizontally, on the printing press. As in all of my etchings, several workings of each plate took place in combination with an acid bath. The plates measured 3 inches high by two-inches wide, or 12.7cm x 10.1cm, making the printed area 3 inches high by 8 inches wide. The print measures 15 by 8 inches., and the work was inspired by a photo taken between 1940 and 1946, which I found in the collection of the DC Library of Congress, in the G. Eric and Edith Matson Photograph Collection. 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.
