Description
In Wolff's work, such as his woodcut Radiance, one finds a bold, rough, dynamic manner, bringing to mind the work of the German Expressionists. William F. Wolff was born on December 30, 1922 in San Francisco. He attended the California School of Fine Arts, and received his bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of California at Berkeley. He studied with Max Beckmann at Mills College, and with Gordon Cook, Richard Graf and Rupert Garcia. Working in woodcut, etching and painting he has exhibited in the Bay Area and abroad, participated actively in the California Society of Printmakers and the Graphic Arts Workshop, and devoted many years teaching art at the San Francisco Youth Guidance Center. In 2001 William Wolff donated over 50 primarily religious works on paper to the Hearst Art Gallery at Saint Mary's College of California. The gift includes his 8-print series Witnesses of the Apocalypse, as well as images relating to passages found in both the Old and New Testaments, in media such as etching, lithograph and woodcut. William Wolff died in San Francisco on October 29, 2004.
