George Taylor Plowman (1869-1932) trained as an architect, but got interested in art and trained as an artist in Paris and London from 1910 to 1913.  He not only produced his own etchings, for which he won a Bronze Medal at the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition, but he also authored Etchings and Other Graphic Arts and Manual of Etching.  His excellent reputation is evidenced by his membership in many etching societies, including the Chicago Society of Etchers, the Brooklyn Society of Etchers, the New York Society of Etchers, the California Printmakers, and the Society of American Etchers.


George Plowman died on March 26, 1932 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
