The New York Times on Friday May 8th Featured a print made by Silicon and CR Ettinger Studio in Philadelphia as part of the story on the Metropolitan Museum of New York's new exhibit Infinite Jest: Caricature and Satire from Leonardo to Levine which does not open until September 13, 2011, but it seems is still worthy of a NYT article.
The print is a Chin Colle and a collaboration between the artists Enrique Chagoya, George Cruikshank (but I don't think he knew much about it since he died in the 1878), the Rosenbach Museum, Silicon and CR Ettinger Studio. We have one of the prints on display at Silicon if you would like to see it in person and they are also available for purchase at Philagrafika (www.philagrafika.org) for $1,200.
What better way to impress your friends than to have the New York Times casually open next to your print or, if you prefer to be anonymously pretentious then go to the Met with your loved one and declare loudly "Oh Dahling don't we have the same print in our library at home!" (works better if you have the English accent). Of course you do have to buy the print first!
