Axel Haig R.E., a Swede, came to etching from architectural drawing and originally naval architecture. His earliest etchings showed the omission of the inessential, the hallmark of the new etchers but he soon found his feet making etchings suitable to be framed and put on the walls as rivals to paintings. His technique was different: look closely at a Haig Cathedral interior and you see a confused melee of lines, step back and you get the authentic gloom of the Middle Ages.
