He was then quickly drawn more and more to the many possibilities of this artistic medium and by 1926 had completed 331 original etchings. Most of Brangwyn's art concentrated upon figure studies, architectural and marine subjects. He traveled extensively and many of his most famous etchings are of continental views, particularly scenes from Normandy, Belgium and Italy.
