Frank William Brangwyn (1867 - 1956) was one of the most influential etchers of the early twentieth century, and had already established his reputation as a major painter and watercolourist before he attempted his first etching in 1900. He was drawn to the many possibilities of this medium and by 1926 had completed 331 original etchings. Most of Brangwyn's art concentrated upon figure studies, architectural and marine subjects.
