  • A Woodcut on Paper, Self-Portrait of Emil Armin
    By Emil Armin
    Located in Chicago, IL
    A woodcut on paper of a self-portrait of artist Emil Armin. Emil Armin was born in Radautz, Austria in 1883. By the age of 10, Armin was orphaned and was raised by his older siblings. He supported himself by working in restaurants and drew in his spare time. In 1905, at the age of 21, Armin immigrated to Chicago. He began studying at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1907, but financial difficulties forced him to start and stop a number of times, finally graduating in 1920. He studied with George Bellows and Randall Davey. Armin was an integral part of Chicago’s 57th Street Art Colony and exhibited in both the more avant-garde Chicago No-Jury Society Shows, as well as the more formal and conventional Chicago Society of Artists Exhibitions, the Chicago Renaissance Society and Art Institute of Chicago (1922-1949) exhibitions. He taught at Hull House...

  • "Casa Marquez" original woodcut print signed by Carol Summers
    By Carol Summers
    Located in Milwaukee, WI
    "Casa Marquez" is an excellent example of the printmaking of Carol Summers. In the image, Summers has featured a Spanish Renaissance building, replete with classical architecture - ionic pilasters and roman arches over glazed windows that reflect the landscape like a pair of eyes. In the far distance is a red sunset over the Mediterranean sea. This interest in classical subject matter is common of modern artists: both Picasso and Giorgio de Chirico looked to classical themes throughout their careers, abstracting Greek and Roman architecture and narratives to characterize the instability of modernity. Summers certainly does the same here by warping and tilting what should be a stable stone structure. The drama of Summer's representation of the villa is enhanced by his signature printmaking technique, which allows the ink from the woodblock to seep through the paper, blurring the edges of each form. The title of the print refers to the author Gabriel García Márquez, known for such novels as One Hundred Years of Solitude...
