Stephen Alonzo Schoff (1818-1904) - Historic Engraver
Stephen A. Schoff was my great-great-grandfather. He engraved and etched portraits, illustrations and bank note vignettes, almost always copied from paintings, drawings or photographs. I thought it would be interesting to show his work next to the original art, (or at least in the vicinity of the original; Pinterest always reshuffles the images a bit). He's little known today, but look at the artists and writers he was associated with, and in many cases knew personally.
