Lester Hornby was an American artist (1882-1956) whose works included etchings, dry-points, color aquatints, and lithographs. He first studied art in America, and then went to Paris around 1906 to continue. He was in Paris throughout the war, returning to the US in 1918. Hornby worked a lot on light and shadows, and was well known for his impressions of pleasant and re-freshening streets, narrow balconies and curious passage-ways. Passage Saint Paul, Paris is a famous walkway even today. Around 1907 Hornby made his etching of this famous walkway which he then produced 40 impressions.
