"Etching is traditionally the process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the metal" -Wikipedia

The Etchings of Whistler and His Circle  is a 2017 exhibit at the Portland Art Museum which says: "Drawn from the holdings of the Portland Art Museum and local collections, this exhibition presents etchings by Whistler and artists who were influenced by his lyrical, atmospheric style and delicate tonal harmonies. Whistler's views of Venice, in particular, enthralled generations of etchers, as seen in the work of Otto Henry Bacher, Frank Duveneck, James McBey, and Joseph Pennell, among others."  Accessed 8/17
