135. Tovell, Rosemarie L. “Charles Henry White (1878-1918), Canada’s Painter-Etcher of American Cities.” Vol. 22, no. 1 (Spring 1997), 2-10.
In this well-documented article, Tovell establishes White as a founder of the etching revival of the early 1900s, a movement known for its realistic treatment of subject matter. She focuses on his etchings of American cities, particularly New York, executed beginning in 1901. At the same time, he provided illustrations for popular magazines such as Harper’s Monthly. Although he lived abroad beginning in 1909, he exhibited in Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia.
