This intricate and beautifully executed hard-ground
etching was a very limited edition because the metal
plate was dropped and damaged during the printing
process.  After doing the Artist's Proofs in both brown
and black ink, I decided to print the edition in Black Ink.

I have 4 Artist's Proofs available in Black Ink
and
2 Artist's Proofs available in Brown Ink

    WHAT IS A HARD GROUND ETCHING?
For this technique, the metal plate is coated with asphaltum
which is dark brown.  The artist then takes a metal stylus and
draws directly on the plate, exposing the metal.  The plate is
then etched in an acid bath. The plate is then cleaned and the
procedure repeated until the artist is satisfied with the image.  
As the work progresses, the artist may run "state" proofs to
gauge the work. "Rush Hour" went through five states to
achieve the final result.
