Warrington Colescott Art

American, b. 1921

Warrington Colescott was an American artist best known for his satirical Etchings. Working in that area which he calls that black zone between tragedy and high comedy, where with a little pull or push one way or the other you can transmute screams into laughter, Colescott examined the society of today, its virtues and its inequities. To strengthen satire, he juxtaposed humor and violence to reinforce a comment on a current situation, he made use of historical reference.
