William Strang (1859 – 1921) was a Scottish printmaker as painter. He was a student of Alphonso Legros at the Slade School of Art in London where he embraced the school of realism that shaped his work throughout his career. Much of his early career was spent etching landscapes and the portraits of the important artistic and literary figures of his time. Some of his best etchings were done as a series of illustrations for books, with this issue of The Pilgrim’s Progress considered one of his finest efforts.
