This is a miniature Mezzotint engraving on copper. The plate it was engraved on is 1"x 2.5"It was exhibited in England in a printmaking competition. I used Daniel Smith Intense Black etching ink on Lana Gravure, french printmaking paper.

Very original and very well done!
Brilliant and confronting work Anthony!
Wow-small but oh so powerful! Love to know (or see) how you framed this work.Well done.
Thanks Y~ Mezzotint engraving is typically a miniature medium. It is work intensive to prepare the ground on the copper plate, so they tend to be small… and most of the printmaking venues for them are constrained by miniature formats. I consider them a challange like Haiku poetry… trying to say a lot in as few lines as possible, or in this case, as much content in a small space as possible. I simply mat the prints, for a small frame ~ usually in the 8×10″ range… the extra mat sets off the image nicely. ~A
