Chicago society of etchers

DEFINITION

Organized by Bertha Evelyn Clausen Jaques in 1910 and dissolved in 1972, the Chicago Society of Etchers had membership and exhibitions in the United States and abroad. Under the leadership of Jaques, the Society initiated the 20th-century revival of etching, a medium that had been much overlooked by American art professionals as well as the general public. Prominent members included Cornelius Botke, Ralph Fabri, Gene Kloss, Leon Pescheret and Maltby Sykes.
