John Seymour Lindsay was a master of drawing metalwork. It is amazing how the flourish of his simple pencil could so faithfully portray the characteristics of beaten wrought metal. He had few if any equals in this particular medium and also knew his subject – ironwork. He had handled hundreds of pieces of wrought iron and other metal implements, understanding texture, patina and finish.
