egon and joan teichert




Raised in Yonkers, New York, Butler, studied with Eugene Speicher, F. Louis Mora, and Joseph Pennell at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design in New York. The artist spent most of his time working in the New England, and Western areas of the United States. His base was New York and a home near a lake in New Hampshire. Butler does not rely on tonal value in his etchings, but depends on linear precision and a three-dimensional design. Whether he is doing the farms of New England, a ranch land in New Mexico, the deserts of the Southwest, or trains passing through; a penciled line, a distant view, and the white of the paper are of utmost importance in his compositions. He is one of the few American etchers that depended solely on pure line to create a rhythmic quality in his designs of American landscape.
