Francis Seymour Haden worked professionally as a surgeon, experimenting avidly with etching in his spare time. He took up the medium while it was experiencing a major revival of interest in London, and he quickly developed an artistic reputation that outweighed his medical work. Most of Haden’s prints were landscapes. In this work, he cleanly wiped ink from the plate to suggest the sun’s bright light and reflection over the river.
