Description
This early woodcut by Wilson is printed on a black paper, a technique developed by Anne Ryan in the late 1940's. Milton Wilson was born in Portland, Oregon in 1923. He served in World War II, and then studied at the Portland Museum Art School (now known as Pacific Northwest College of Art) under Louis Bunce and later at the California School of Fine Arts and the San Francisco Institute of Art. His art is characterized by a vibrant palette and bold, fluid brush strokes with an almost calligraphic quality. The bulk of his work is abstract--multi-layered, voluptuous riots of lines and curves
