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, work, he worked experimentally, combining two separate prints (from a plate that had been cut in two) and drawing on the image in graphite to further reconsider the composition.
