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

On Aquatint:

"Without the use of incised lines this method creates a design with layers of transparent tones that are somewhat similar in appearance to a wash drawing. Dramatically delicate traces of blue-gray, yellow, and even orange enliven the intricate montage of dark tonalities in his 'The Tall Trees'.
