JUENGLING, yŭng'lĭng, Frederick, American wood engraver: b. 1846; d. 1889. He was one of the founders and the first secretary of the American Society of Wood Engravers (1881). In his art he was one of the most consistent advocates and practicers of the new American system of wood engraving which substituted short broken lines, dots and so forth for the regulation long lines and regular sweep of the graver. He was a bold and clever workman and met with very considerable success. Consult Weitenkampf, Frank, ‘American Graphic Art’ (New York 1912).
