Shtetl Portfolio Plate 08 Untitled (Wedding Dancers)
Gropper, William (American Social Realist)
Harkening back to his Jewish roots, William Gropper published in 1970 a series of twenty-four color lithographs on Jewish village life called The Shtetl. This series was purchased with the Peter Graham Fund for Radicalism in Literature and Art. Gropper had these remarks on his artwork:
This lithograph has a special provenance, coming from the collection of the artist’s niece. It is one of the twenty artist’s proofs which preceded the edition of 120.
