- The work of engravers in Portland, Maine, in the 1820s mirrored a society that regarded engraving as a trade rather than an art. The engravings are respectably done, but none of the engravers of this period stayed long in Portland, probably because of financial problems. This article explores the lives and work of engravers David G. Johnson and George Washington Appleton.
