JULIUS BLOCH (1888-1966) original charcoal self-portrait drawing by well listed Philadelphia Jewish artist‏

Self portrait drawing in charcoal, 11" by 8 1/2" (18" by 16" as framed, the gold frame possibly antique) by the German-born artist who came to be associated with Jewish art in Philadelphia, JULIUS BLOCH (1888-1966). Bloch, who came to be known as a social realist, greatly admired Thomas Eakins of Philadelphia, under whom he trained. The young artist was also a student of Thomas Anshutz at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Bloch went on to a long career in painting and the graphic arts, in addition to mural work. For a time he was part of the Woodstock art colony in New York State, as well as a participant in the WPA (Works Project Administration). Judging from the large amount of work Bloch left behind, he worked in many media, and with widely varied subject matter. His art was exhibited at prestigious venues, including the Whitney Museum, National Academy, Art Institute of Chicago, Corcoran, Carnegie, and Pennsylvania Academy. I am offering this item on behalf of a Philadelphia-area relative. It will be shipped from there. Better images available upon request.
