James Swann

Swann was born in Merkel, Texas in 1905, and studied at Sul Ross State Teachers College, Texas. Moving to Chicago, he became an active leader of the Chicago Society of Etchers and the Prairie Print Makers. His love for Chicago was displayed in his etchings with great affection and admiration, suggesting an almost dream-like quality. This romanticism of the city is contrary to that of Carl Sandburg's poetry and Upton Sinclair's book, The Jungle, voicing criticism of social conditions existing at that time.
