Description

This abstract woodcut was included in a portfolio of 7 prints conceived, published and printed in San Diego, California by Irwin Hollander in Spring of 1961, titled "Black Folio." All the artists were working in the San Diego area.

An early abstract expressionist, Lumpkins had moved to San Diego from New Mexico to work as an architect but as an artist associated with the Southern California avant garde, many of whom also did work for this portfolio, an early printing project for Master Printer Irwin Hollander.

The 7 artists included: Don Dudley (born: 1930); Fred Holle (born: 1931); Sheldon Kirby (born: 1925); William Lumpkins (1909-2000); Malcoln McClain (1923-2012), Richard Allen Morris (born: 1933) and Guy Williams (1932-2004).
