Description

An elegant butterfly with its beautifully decorated wings... sometimes seen as a symbol of the soul or of transformation, because of its impressive process of metamorphosis.

This etching has been made on a copper plate as a mirror image and printed by means of an etching press using a process that has changed little since Rembrandt’s day 400 years ago. Every etching is inked by hand and is thus an unique and original artwork.

It has been printed on Somerset Velvet handmade paper from St Cuthbert’s Mill in the UK using high quality professional etching ink. The paper has a soft cream color.

The etching measures 9 x 6 cm (3.5” x 2.4”) and comes with a mat (mount) that's the same color as the paper measuring 13 x 18 cm (5" x 7"). Available printed in black or sepia brown ink (just select from the dropdown box when ordering). In the first photos the etching is printed in brown, and the 5th in black.

It has an edition of 45 and is signed and numbered. A leaflet will also be enclosed explaining how the etching was made.

If you'd like to see how the etchings are made, see this link: http://atelier28.blogspot.com/p/how-etching-is-made-hoe-een-ets-gemaakt.html

I also make etchings and other artwork in commission, so check out: www.atelier28.net
