LOUIS SCHANKER   (1903-1981)
A native New Yorker, Louis Schanker left home as a youngster to join the circus. In 1920 he returned to New York and studied at Cooper Union, the Art Students League, and the Education Alliance School of Art. By 1935 Schanker made his first woodcut, finding the medium and establishing a pattern of experimentation that would figure prominently throughout his career.
