Leonard Baskin, American, 1922-2000, "Self Portrait as a Priest". A rare artist's proof by Leonard Baskin, this is an early woodcut portraying the artist dressed as a priest. The image size is 21 1/4 x 10 inches, published in 1952, cat: Fern & O'Sullivan-193, pencil signed and dated, notated 'artist's proof', framed. Baskin was an important artist in the mid 20th century, known for his evocative wood engravings, lithographs, and etchings. In the era of abstract expressionism, Baskin’s work tended toward the representational with a strong classical influence, and over the course of his long career he created many self portraits which beautifully showcase the evolution of his style.
