Pedro J. de Lemos was the last nationally recognized leader of the American Arts & Crafts Movement.

On etching:

"Lemos declared: 'Etching requires a positive confidence in one's subject, a restraint in the use of lines, requiring the maximum of expression to be made with the minimum of means,' and has the distinct advantage of an "autographic art because it permits the artist to be his own engraver and printer."
