  • Seguin often treated trees not as separate units but as a group linked by sinuous lines. Here he used aquatint and drypoint to create the wash effect that fuses the foliage of the individual apple trees.
  • This densely patterned landscape is typical of Seguin’s approach to printmaking during the summer of 1893, when he and fellow artist Roderic O’Conor embarked upon a campaign to depict the landscape of Brittany through etchings.
