Herman Armour Webster

Webster was born in New York and educated at Yale University. He studied art in Paris at the Academie Julian. Webster was a master of superb drawings and etchings of city scenes in Europe and the United States, using excellent draftsmanship and fine tonal gradation to create a feeling of drama on paper. He was a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers, Societe National des Beaux Arts, and the National Academy of Design. His etchings and drawings are included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the British Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
