Description
Arthur C. Painter wrote the following about Kadish and his lithograph Stump in the San Francisco Chronicle on March 10, 1940: "Kadish worked with the noted muralist Sequeiros in painting the mural at the University of Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico, as well as murals in Los Angeles and Durante, California. …and at the present time heads the Mural Division for the Federal Art Project. His paintings and lithographs have been exhibited in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and at the Paris Exposition. "Stump" by Kadish is a composite impression of many tree drawings, and the artist has shown the vital forces of nature through the use of a dead object. This feeling of virility is developed through the use of form and flowing line. The small twigs at the left are used to pull the mass into upright balance, and the barn and tree to create size and dimension."
