CHARLES TURZAK (1899-1986)

Loop Alley.
Color woodcut. 277x220 mm; 11x8 3/4 inches, full margins. Edition of approximately 25. Signed and titled in pencil, lower margin. Circa 1935.

A very good impression.

Turzak attended the Art Institute of Chicago while working as a freelancer. He excelled in creating woodcut prints and taught the medium at the Academy of Fine Arts. After returning from his studies in Europe, Turzak was employed by the WPA Federal Arts Project in Chicago, where his prints depicted the city's preserverence and strength in the face of hardship and loss of faith.
