A Note of Interest: Many of the etchings created by Harry were produced in low numbers of around fifty copies in a print edition. Think of that in terms of artist's prints produced today and maybe you'll ask yourself where the true value is to be found. Harry, along with other artists in his day, like Fred Jopling, felt that they didn't want to mass reproduce their works. They felt that higher number print editions wouldn't allow each print to hold its true value over time. And, that they might be risking their reputations and artistic integrity by creating larger print runs. This is something that was shunned by print-making associations and their members.
