These 2 antique etchings are signed by their creator Arthur William Heintzelman (1891-1965).

Born in Newark, New Jersey, Arthur William Heintzelman was a painter, etcher, copyist, teacher, and curator. Raised in Providence, Rhode Island, he first studied art at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he subsequently taught, and also in Europe. The Heintzelmans made their home in France and subsequently in Switzerland from 1921 until 1934, when they returned to the United States. Already widely respected as a printmaker prior to his departure for Europe, Heintzelman became internationally famous during his years abroad and was - and is - regarded as one of the greatest etchers of the Twentieth Century. In appreciation for his contribution to French art and culture, he was named to the Legion of Honor by the French government. [Courtesy Brier Hill Gallery]
