Morning Light II
Aquatint – Image Size 15 3/4 x 20 inches
Eric Goldberg made the plates and state proofs. Cindi Ettinger of Philadelphia printed the edition in March 2016 on Somerset, Satin 250 g paper using two copper (steel-faced) plates and Charbonnel inks. Goldberg said the etching and aquatint came “to enompass more than just that one morning in June â€¦ It became the light of morning … As a metaphor, I am amazed with a sense of renewal and awakening. As a part of the natural world it is the splendor of the morning light, which amazes me. Born in Bridgeport, Conn, and now of Philadelphia, Goldberg works mainly in etching and painting, depicting realistically rendered images. His prints and paintings are in many collections such as The Taiwan National Museum of Fine Arts, The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, The Boston Athenaeum, The Boston Public Library, and The Newport Art Museum.
