Description

Printed upon wove paper and with full margins as published in New York around 1960. Business Meeting is signed in pencil by the artist and numbered along the lower margin. A finely printed impression and in excellent condition throughout. This original lithograph represents a prime example of the famous satirical art of William Gropper.

William Gropper: One of America’s greatest twentieth century social and satirical artists, William Gropper studied painting and printmaking under George Bellows at the Ferrer School in San Francisco (1913-14), at the National Academy of Design (1914) and at the New York School of Fine Art (1915-18). He was first employed as a staff artist for The New York Tribune (1919-21) and later for the New York World (1925-27). During this time Gropper also contributed many drawings to Leftist publications such as ‘The New Masses’ and ‘The Liberator’. By the mid 1920’s William Gropper had established himself as a major satirical artist and lithography became one of his most potent weapons for launching his attacks against big business and big politics.

During the following decades William Gropper achieved a fine reputation around the world. In 1958, for example, he received the Young Israel Prize.
