To buy the Book Richard V. Correll - Prints and Drawings

With more than 100 images spanning almost six decades, this monograph is the first comprehensive look at the art of Richard V. Correll (1904 - 1990), called one of America's finest but least known printmakers of the 20th Century. 

The powerful black and white woodcuts, linoleumcuts, etchings, lithographs, and drawings reproduced in this book present images of the natural world, the world of work, and world events that deeply impacted Correll's social conscience.

Highlights include a selection of witty and stinging political cartoons printed in the New Masses in the mid-1930's, a series of prints depicting folk legend Paul Bunyan, completed while Correll was in the Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), several exquisite pencil drawings done for an unpublished edition of Jack London's The Call of the Wild, and the searing anti-war images of his mature style. The reproductions are enhanced by a brief biography of the artist and an insightful and cogent essay by DeWitt Cheng, who places Correll's work with the Social Realism Movement and beyond. As one curator wrote, "the maturity of his technique, with its rich textures and dramatic contrasts, combines with a wide range of subject matter to produce a body of work of great warmth, power, and depth."* 

Correll's prints are in the Collections of major American museums, the Library of Congress, and many private collections.
