Description
Aldrin learned the techniques of the Japanese color woodcut from Frank Morley Fletcher. In 1928, he studied for six months at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco before settling permanently in Los Angeles. That same year Aldrin made his first color woodcut and continued to experiment with the medium until 1937. Many of Aldrin's woodcuts are listed in the G.S.A. survey of WPA artworks held in Non-Federal repositories.
