Frederick Landseer Maur Griggs, was an influential English etcher and illustrator. Born in Hertfordshire, in 1876 Griggs studied at the Slade School of Art and worked for two years as an architectural draughtsman before devoting his career to the visual arts. In 1912 Griggs committed himself to etching and established a reputation as a leader of his generation. His stunning compositions, depicting idealised Gothic buildings and landscapes, place Griggs as an interpreter of the British pastoral tradition following in the footsteps of Blake, Palmer and Calvert.
