Engraved Landscapes Wall Murals

The rapid improvements to printing technology during the Victorian era gave rise to a new and immediately eye-catching art style. Nineteenth-century engravings are known for their intricate details and delicately shaded depths. Now, vintage engraved landscapes are seeing a second Renaissance since their day in the sun during the Industrial Revolution. Engraved landscape wallpaper murals allow homeowners and business owners alike to adorn their space with sophisticated and stylish etched wall murals. From imaginative prehistoric jungle landscapes to exotic adventures to remote mountain ranges, vintage landscape engravings add a touch of history and beauty to any room.

A Style for the Ages

Since their rise to prominence during the Industrial Revolution of Victorian-era of England, engraved prints and etched illustrations have enchanted and beguiled viewers with their alluring, intricate detail and refined appearance. During this era, the process of printing engraved images became streamlined with the introduction of metal plates and commercial printing presses. Artists carefully carved lines in these metal plates to hold the ink, often resulting in exquisite levels of detail for landscapes, diagrams, and educational illustrations intended for reproduction in textbooks and art books.

Etched illustrations, on the other hand, often produced a much looser, seemingly hand-sketched result. Etchings result from applying acid to a metal plate prepared with a wax base that the artist then carves into. The acid eats away the exposed metal, creating fissures that hold the ink. Etchings contain a wide range of tonal variation depending on the duration the metal is exposed to the acid, which can result in deep black lines as well as shades of gray.
