Etched illustrations have mesmerized viewers with their elegance since the 15th century. Traditional etching involves carving into a metal plate coated with wax, then using acid to create grooves that hold the ink. Ink is applied to the printing plate, then run through a printing press to reproduce the image. Artists like James McNeill Whistler, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, and Charles Meryon crafted intricate landscape drawings with this printing method.
In the Victorian era, improvements to printing technology led to the revival of etchings. The technique truly flourished in the mid-19th century, especially among French artists. During this era, the process of printing engraved images became streamlined with the introduction of metal plates and commercial printing presses. Now, vintage engraved landscapes are seeing a second Renaissance in the form of beautiful vintage landscape wallpapers.
