LOUIS SCHANKER   (1903-1981)
This summer, though July 28, 2018, the exhibition LOUIS SCHANKER: The WPA Years, is on view at the Pollock-Krasner House, East Hampton, NY. A trip to the Pollock-Krasner House is always a good idea, but this is also a wonderful opportunity to see extremely scarce early work on paper from Schanker's estate.
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.
