Description

One of six portraits, each in an edition of 100, published by Peregrin Press

About the Artist (1922-2000) A highly respected draftsman, printmaker, teacher, and sculptor, Leonard Baskin had the ability to depict in an abstract style man and his relation to the world. Whether working with bronze or wood or two-dimensional mediums, his focus remained on large heroic, but flawed human beings who at times recall photographic images of concentration-camp victims or birds with human bodies that suggest mythological forms. 

Born in 1922 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, Baskin studied sculpture with Maurice Glickman at the Educational Alliance, New York City, from 1937 to 1943. He had many influences at that time including Ossip Zadkine, Henri Laurens, and Alexander Archipenko. 

In 1949, he began to make wood engravings, and his attitude toward the nature of man grew more generalized, but no less moralistic or didactic. In style these works are closest to German Die Brucke prints. At this time he studied abroad at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere, Paris and the Accademia di Belle Arti, Florence. During this period, he became familiar with significant European art collections, many of which helped release in him the sculptural images he has since used. For many years, he was a professor of sculpture at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts." Excerpted from www.AskArt.com

Baskin’s sculpture, watercolors and prints are in the permanent collections of many of the major art venues of the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Vatican Museum in Rome.
