Geoffrey Wedgwood

Born in England in 1900, Wedgwood studied at the Liverpool City School of Art, the British School of Rome, and the Royal College of Art with Frank Short, Malcolm Osborne, and Job Nixon. He had a penchant for architectural scenes which he did in exquisite fine line through etching, drypoint, and line engraving. To soften the precision and formality of his works, Wedgwood added small figures, local to the scene in a sympathetic manner. Most of his graphic art was done between 1929 and 1940, depicting Rome, Genoa, Toledo, and London. Wedgwood was elected to the Royal Academy in 1925.
