Called the father of French etching, the technical advances Callot made in the art form expanded the medium’s aesthetic potential. Along with his invention of the échoppe, a tool that formed etched lines similar to those in engravings, Callot developed a varnish that dried hard and allowed for a deeper bite. Having met Callot during his trip to the Netherlands in 1626, Van Dyck most likely used this varnish for his etchings.
