Copperplate etching by the Florentine artist Gianni Raffaelli of a pair of golf shoes. Signed, stamped and numbered. Matted and framed in a daark wooden frame under glass.

Raffaelli's employs the same technique developed in the old artisan workshops of Florence 500 years ago. The complex slow process includes sketching the subject on paper, imprinting the images on the copper plate wax using special needles, and acid-based etching. For simple subjects, this process may take 3-4 days. For larger projects, it is not unusual to work 3 months to prepare a single copper plate. Some of the etchings are then meticulously colored by hand, such as the offered etching of golf shoes. Each plate produces only 150 etchings of the same image: this one is numbered 56 out of 150.

Measurements:

Length and width of the frame: 17.25" x 15.25" (43.8 cm x 38.7 cm).
Length and width of the etching: 10" x 8" (25.5 cm x 20.3 cm).
Frame's thickness: 0.8" (2 cm).
