The new style of work gave etching a distinctive appearance which was allied to theories of the sketch and of working direct from nature and reliant on swift execution. The freedom and directness of the etching process became a key plank in a sustained attempt to raise the status of etching in Britain spearheaded by artists such as Francis Seymour Haden and James McNeill Whistler and members of the Etching Club. Focused on Britain, the book offers a fascinating investigation of the market for etchings in the Victorian period."--BOOK JACKET."
