Etchings by Don Swann

Samuel Donovan [Don] Swann (1889-1954) studied art in Munich and in Rome but lived and worked in Baltimore. The focus of most of his etchings was historic Americana, particularly views of his native state. In 1939, Swann issued an illustrated book, Colonial and Historic Homes of Maryland, dealing with 18th century Maryland. Interestingly, the forward for the book was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940). Swann's etchings can be found in such major collections as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the United States Naval Museum, the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution.

All are etchings, signed in pencil and in very good condition unless noted otherwise.
