In his younger years Bisson worked mainly in water color
and line drawing. By the early late 70's he was involved with perfecting
an etching technique unique to his own style of drawing. By the 1980's
Paul Bisson had been named the foremost landscape etcher in Europe and
had established himself as a prominent artist in the United States. His

The exquisite landscape presented in this etching is typical of the art of Paul Bisson. Detail is fine, delicate, and handsome. In Bisson's images, such as the one below, the viewer can see the artist's love for the countryside and almost feel the crisp day presented. Individually rendered blades of grass, branches of trees, and other carefully rendered crisp detail require the viewer to examine the images up close. This intimate relationship between viewer and artwork is a valued relationship that artists of fine etchings strive to create. And, it is this very intimacy about graphic arts that is especially valued and loved by collectors.
