More information

Thanks to the American artist Whistler and his brother-in-law Francis Seymour, graphic work in England experienced an enormous blossoming in the nineteenth century. Taking Rembrandt as their model, they promoted a veritable revolution, especially in the art of etching. Their etchings were skilfully and swiftly made, having a somewhat sketchy character, and tend to depict landscapes or cityscapes - as in this picture of the river Thames in London. The 'architects' of the museum's Print Room, Domela Nieuwenhuis and Bierens de Haan, began collection this 'new' English graphic work; it has continued to be an important focus of attention in the collection.
