Lynn Shaler (born 1955) is an American artist known for her color aquatint etchings. Many of her works feature locations in the city of Paris. Early subjects often included objects such as doorknobs, envelopes, theater exits, a pair of shoes. Later and more recent subjects often include architectural details or interior views opening onto an exterior scene. Many of her works also feature a dog, a cat, umbrella(s) and/or a lady in a red/pink coat. The majority of her works are made with multiple plates and many are, at least in part, hand-colored.
