Offered is an excellent woodengraving by well listed artist Henry J. (Hendrik) Glintenkamp (1887 - 1946). Glintenkamp exhibited in the famous 1913 Armory Show in New York City. A painter, printmaker, illustrator and sculptor, he studied at the Art Students League in New York City with Robert Henri. Glintenkamp, from 1913-1917, created illustrations for The Masses, the leftist magazine, working with editor-artist John Sloan, and painters George Bellows and Stuart Davis, and sharing a studio for a time with the latter artist.
Henry Glintenkamp's woodcuts, like his paintings often depicting urban life in New York City, Mexico and Spain, were boldly simplified to intense areas of black and white. His wood engravings and drawings explored similar subjects.
Glintencamp lived in Mexico for extended periods during the first decades of the 20th century. He was friends with writer John Dos Passos and painter Diego Rivera. After life there and travels in England, he worked for the WPA (Federal Art Project) in New York City. Glintenkamp's book, A Wanderer in Woodcuts, was published in 1932 by Farrar & Rinehart in New York City. It describes the artist's European experience, with a woodcut on every right-hand page, and a modest amount of text on the left.
Untitled (Chrysler building with dock workers), this woodengraving's image size is 8 1/2" x 5 1/4". It was published by the artist on antique-white wove paper in an edition of 50. Print is dated '42 in roman numerals in the block. Unsigned, it is initialed in block. This etching is offered in a fine mat professionally and archival mounted. Ready to frame and enjoy.
