ABOUT THE ARTIST Paul Landacre’s wood engravings are distinguished by their flawless craftsmanship and impeccable design. His elegant compositions, at once highly modernist and intimately personal, inspired both Rockwell Kent and Carl Zigrosser to name him the pre-eminent American wood engraver of the 20th century. His work garnered numerous printmaking awards—among them, his illustrated books of poems for Ward Ritchie and Alexander Dumas 'A Gil Blas in California', and his first solo book, 'California Hills and Other Wood Engravings', winner of the 'Fifty Books of the Year' (1931), American Institute of Graphic Arts. In 1946 he was elected to the National Academy of Design, and in 1947 the Smithsonian celebrated Landacre at midcareer by giving him a solo exhibition which was curated by the influential painter, printmaker, and scholar Jacob Kainen. Landacre's graphic work is represented in numerous public and museum collections including: Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Brooklyn Museum, Harvard Art Museums, Library of Congress, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles Public Library, Museum of Modern Art, Oakland Museum of California, New York Public Library, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Seattle Art Museum, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art.
