Biography William J. Schwanekamp
William J. Schwanekamp (American, 1893-1970) artist, etcher,
printmaker, painter, designer and lecturer best known for his 'Buffalo
Alley' series of etchings in the 1920-30's, and of aging buildings,
market scenes and landscapes. He was a prominent member of the
Buffalo Print Club and served as president in 1953. Of all the
Buffalo Print Club members, there were only three artists who truly
stood out above the rest in the field of printmaking, Kevin O'Callahan
(American, 1902-1977) who was perhaps the finest printmaker, along with
master draughtsman, Niels Yde Andersen (Danish-American, 1888-1952) and
William J. Schwanekamp. A few of Schwanekamp's etchings were even
offered through the Buffalo Print Club's subscription
