Antonio Frasconi (Uruguayan/American, b. 1919)

Born in 1919 and raised in Uruguay, Antonio Frasconi emigrated to the United States in 1945 to study at the Art Students League in New York. Within a decade, he had established himself as one of the foremost graphic artists of his generation.  Frasconi is especially noted for his exceptional woodcuts, which pair a poetic sympathy for the human spirit with bold social commentary. His work is in the collection of several major museums including MoMA, Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and the Brooklyn Museum.
