Description
Martin Barooshian, painter, printmaker and educator, was born in Chelsea, Massachusetts in 1929 and studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Art Boston from which he received diplomas in 1952 and 1955. The Albert H. Whitlin traveling fellowship allowed him to travel to Europe in 1952, and he received his B.S. in Education from Tufts University and his M.A. from Boston University. In 1956, Barooshian was in Paris and studied printmaking at Atelier 17 with S.W. Hayter. His early work was influenced by the Surrealists, Gauguin, William Blake and Gorky. "Apollo & Daphne" was done at Atelier 17 using a combination of color engraving, aquatint and soft-ground etching.
