Description
William Ernst Hentschel was born in New York on June 16, 1892. He studied art at the Art Students League, Columbia University, University of Kentucky (degree) and the Cincinnati Art Academy. In 1913 Hentschel was hired as a designer at Rookwood Pottery where he worked until 1932 and produced over 4000 designs. This drawing of 3 cows and a calf is accomplished by using the dark patterning of their markings and a few lines to define the shapes, a Notan approach. See our biography above for more information about Hentschel.
