Ernest Haskell

Ernest Haskell was born, 1876, in Connecticut, and received his art training in Boston and Paris, where he studied the paintings and drawings of Manet, Daumier, and Degas. Returning to New York he held an exhibition of his drawings and lithographs of famous people in the United States. His interest in etching was influenced by Whistler after his completion of two caricatures of the artist. It was Haskell's meticulous perseverance with the etching needle that produced the minute detail of each leaf and branch shown, in every tree of his landscapes. The major part of his work in etching was done in California, Maine, and Florida. He was killed in an automobile accident in Maine, November, 1925. Haskell's friend Childe Hassam said of him, "I think of his etchings as among the best that have been made-absolutely and wholly personal, some so meticulously and highly finished that it may be said that they were really in the spirit of the old masters." John Marin wrote, "I don't believe there was a man in the whole country who knew as much about his craft as Ernest Haskell." Haskell produced 414 prints during his short lifetime which are nearly forgotten, but the breadth of his work, when viewed, remain unexcelled in the field of American graphic arts.
