About the Artist
(1818-1910, British) Francis Seymour Haden attended a government art training school where he
learned to draw and etch. He was a
surgeon as well as an etcher and collector, having completed his medical
studies at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1838.
After a year of travel in Italy and Switzerland, he took over his late
father’s London medical practice.
1845 he began to study and collect etchings.
By 1858 he was a serious etcher.
In 1866 a portfolio of his landscape etchings was published in the Gazette des Beaux-Arts, which brought
him international acclaim.
He founded the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers &
Engravers in 1880 and campaigned tirelessly for etching to be taken seriously
as a medium of creative artistic expression.
He was knighted in 1894 for his contribution to art.
