About

We are especially fond of Carol Summers' subject matter and color palette from the 1960s and 70s. This edition of only 50 was from 1967. Paper size: 49" x 37". Signed, dated and numbered 17/50. Carol Summers' woodcuts are not "cookie cutter", each one was lovingly created by him. As he himself wrote, "So, as one who prints his own prints, I don't see editioning as a sterile act of reproducing an original. Each child is different -- the mother in me takes them all to heart, but the artist throws out the ones I don't like. They make wonderful wrapping paper." Carol Summers, one of America's foremost printmakers, was born in Kingston, NY in 1925. After service in World War II in the Pacific, he attended Bard College where he studied painting under Stefan Hirsch and printmaking with Louis Schanker. Soon after his graduation in 1951 he was awarded several prestigious fellowships -- one from the Italian government to study in Italy in 1955, two from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation in 1955 and 1960, and another from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation in 1959. University posts and workshops took him all over the world, and his subject matter is mainly colorful, stylized landscapes of the places that were of special significance to him -- such as in Italy, India, and Nepal. In 1974 he was awarded an honorary doctorate from Bard College. His work is in numerous prestigious museums internationally including MOMA, the Met, the Art Institute of Chicago, LACMA, and the Accademia Degli Intronati in Siena, Italy.
