In 1875 Haig traveled to Sicily, Italy, and Germany to sketch the local scenery. Many of his etchings came from these early drawings. Haig did not begin etching until 1870 and was essentially self-taught. In 1880 Haig, along with Francis Seymour Haden and others, founded the Royal Academy of Painters-Etchers and Engravers. Haig always distinguished between architectural drawings and drawings of architecture, and in all of his etchings, his objective was to incorporate a balance between a romantic and dramatic effect, but also to depict the subject as accurately as possible.

Size: 900 620 mm. Etching – signed in pencil, lower right corner. Good condition. Some old markings to outer borders.
