'Intaglio Gallery' - Portrait of D.R.

The Intaglio (etching) gallery features both academic work (realist)along with more Avant Garde Surrealist genre's and subjects. All etchings are drawn, cut by the artist and printed from the zinc plate or the copper plate by the artist(IMP). Like Durer, the artist is trained in printmaking as well as other mediums. Using Aquatint and line/drypoint the plates are etched in consecutive acid baths and then printed using the appropriate ink colors. Each print is considered an original and sold as such. The intials IMP on the print designates that the artist printed the plate himself. All prints are signed and numbered in pencil by the artist. The print 'Portrait of D.R.' is a line etching immersed in consecutive baths and measures 6 by 8" and was etched in 1980 prior to the thefts of 1987, when over 200 seperate plates etched by the artist between 1970 and 1986 were stolen. The 'Portrait of D.R.' is one of the few surviving plates from that period of time. All prints in this gallery are also available in the original as well as in 'GicleePrint' form.
