About

Oil on paper painting of a can-can dancer by William Gropper. Signed lower left. Condition: Very good. Titled verso and signed verso. Beautifully matted and framed. Framed under glass. Overall 21.5 by 24 inches. William Gropper (1897-1977) William Gropper, a major painter of Social Realism and illustrator of political cartoons, was born in New York City in 1897. He studied with Robert Henri and George Bellows. He took realistic art and turned it into pungent critique of the ills of modern society. He spoke of the hypocrisy of its leaders, most notably members of the government in Washington. At the same time, his sympathy for the laborer, the displace person, and the underdog gave his art a humanitarian warmth that muffled any propagandistic shrillness. His incisive views are still relevant as we approach the 21st century. His works are in most major collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Metropolitan Museum.
