On the other hand, Han showed everyone why he is one of Europe’s contemporary masters of copper etching. One of the founders of The Etch-club of The Hague, Han, who was educated at the prestigious Royal Academy for Arts and Design in The Hague, showcased exquisitely detailed, almost photographic, copper etchings of diverse subjects such as birds, sheep, cows and bulls, landscapes and architecture.
