About

Leonard Beck was a commercial artist and printmaker active between the 1920s and 1950s. He made about twenty-five etchings and drypoints, usually with large editions of 100 impressions. This etching of the Argyle Cut is in the tradition of etchings of ‘old Sydney’, a popular subject with etchers from the
1880s through to the 1930s.
