Original woodcut by Columbus-based printmaker Sid Chafetz (1922-2013) depicts the portrait of a smiling woman stationed in front of a mantle place, a large dog panting beside her. Printed in layered tones of ink, the woman is surrounded by small sculptures and paintings hanging on the wall behind her, suggesting this woman was a prominent collector encountered by Chafetz. Matted and housed in a postmodern pink and black frame that accentuates the color palette of the piece, this original woodcut is titled, signed, and numbered by Chafetz along the bottom of the print.
About the Artist:
Sid Chafetz (1922-2013) was an artist and professor based in Columbus, Ohio. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, he attended Rhode Island School of Design before being drafted into the US Army in 1942. He returned after his service and graduated in 1947. He continued his education in France at L’Ecole Americaine des Beaux-Arts and the Acadãmie Julian, alongside artists Fernand Lãger and Stanley W. Hayter. Chafetz would then teach at The Ohio State University beginning in 1948, and was an active part of developing the printmaking program within the Department of Art. He retired from teaching in 1982 to focus on his own art. Deeply satirical with beliefs, his works bear a haunting style laden with politics, education, and literature.
