After starting to etch in 1919, Sydney Long became the first Australian Associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers. He returned to Australia in 1925. Along with the works of Norman Lindsay, Long’s etchings are now the most highly prized of all of the Australian school of etchers. [more]
