Around 1912, between the time Wilcox returned from his first trip to Europe and before he began teaching, he started to experiment with etching. He taught himself, without prior instruction, this intensely technical medium, which even many Renaissance masters out sourced to an expert craftsman of the trade. These detailed etchings are finely executed. Wilcox's use of itaglio line and application of ink somehow simultaneously conveys his virtuoso while also linking his romantic sense of home and memories abroad.
