  Sir Francis Seymour Haden   (1818-1910)

 
  GREENWICH. 1879. Schneiderman 187, Harrington 207, Drake 184. Signed in pencil; signed and dated in the plate. It is impossible to overstate the enthusiasm for Haden's etchings in the USA in the 1880s. Frederick Keppel declared that "By common consent Seymour Haden ranks as the greatest of modern etchers." Artists and the public here agreed. Haden was a major influence on American etchers, and when he gave lectures on etching here during 1882-1884, he drew audiences of nearly 800 people. Greenwich is one of Haden's most spectacular etchings. In excellent condition.
