about Washington Crossing the Delaware

This etching by Stephen Farthing depicts a blurrier version of the famous painting of the same name by Emanuel Leutze.

Figures are obscured behind inky blobs of gray and ice chunks that were once luminous and clear and here recreated with simple white cubes. The only thing that stands out is the flag in the center of the composition, which Farthing decided to keep in traditional red, white, and blue. This etching is signed in pencil.

About The Medium: Etching

The printing process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the metal. In traditional pure etching, a metal (usually copper, zinc or steel) plate is covered with a waxy ground which is resistant to acid. The artist then scratches off the ground with a pointed etching needle where they want a line to appear in the finished piece, exposing the bare metal. The plate is then put through a high-pressure printing press together with a sheet of paper (often moistened to soften it). The paper picks up the ink from the etched lines, making a print.
