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.  

In 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.
