George De Groat
Don Quixote de La Mancha: Signed Limited Edition Woodcut Portrait by De Groat

$1,575

About the Item

A limited edition woodcut portrait of Don Quixote de la Marcha by George De Groat (1917-1995). Don Quixote is instantly recognizable due to his thin face, distinctive pointed goatee and long moustache. This limited edition (5/50) woodcut engraving is signed and numbered in pencil in the lower right and the title is inscribed in pencil in the lower right. The print is presented in a black wood frame with a silver-colored edge and a cream-colored mat. It is glazed with Tru Vue conservation UV protected glass. There is some rippling of the margins related to mounting, but the woodcut is otherwise in very good condition. George DeGroat was educated at the Newark School of Fine Arts. After moving to California, he was associated with many of the figurative painters of the San Francisco Bay Area. Later he taught drawing and painting at San Diego State University, Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, and Otis Art Institute of Los Angeles County. From 1964, he maintained a studio in Big Sur. In 1976 he was Artist-In-Residence at the Monterey Peninsula Museum of Art and Director of the Museum’s Extended Education Program. He received a Ford Foundation Grant for Advanced Experiments in Color Field Painting to develop what he called “Chromatic Expressionism”, a concept in painting which he described as "expressively developed subject matter subordinated to the sensation of a single color. The example of this idea occurs in a series of twelve paintings where a single color is used for each one and each is capable of standing alone as a complete, individual, expressive statement. Since each of the twelve paintings is developed in a different color, all twelve may be combined to provide the visual experience of a single painting involving a twelve-color spectrum: red, red-orange, yellow, yellow-green, green, blue-green, blue, blue-violet, violet, and red-violet." His goal was to incorporate recognizable subject matter combined with elements of abstract design. De Groat would say, "I try to develop images that not only express the essential characteristics of my ideas but also offer the viewers an opportunity to participate by bringing something of themselves to the work."
