"Timothy Cole (1852-1931) was the most technically proficient wood engraver of his time in America. He developed an astounding technique that even rivaled the techniques of photo-engraving, which was just being introduced at that time. He did a great deal of work for Scribner's Magazine and its successor, Century Magazine. It was Century who sent him to Europe to engrave old masters and who published his series of books on Italian, Dutch, Flemish, English, and Spanish old masters, completed around the turn of the century."
