About this artwork

Lithuanian by birth, William Zorach taught at the Art Students League in New York from 1929 to 1960. A sculptor, painter, printmaker, and writer who had studied in Paris in 1910–11, he became part of a small group of modern artists who worked in New York; Provincetown, Massachusetts; and Maine. With his wife, Marguerite Zorach, he showed Fauvist-inspired paintings at the Armory Show in 1913 and Cubist and Expressionist works at the Forum Exhibition of 1916. In this linocut, Zorach exploited the clean lines and smooth surface of the medium to create a Cubist construction in which figure and space are not entirely differentiated.
