      Leon Hicks, b. 1933, Engraving VII: # 3 & 4

      Est: $500 - $700

      Leon Hicks b. 1933 Engraving VII: # 3 & 4 1983 engraving and collage on paper laid down on foam core board 24 x 36 inches (sheet) signed and dated, with Artist's Proof text as an element of the image reads: Lines, Contours and Light Generative Forms An acclaimed engraver and draughtsman, Leon Hicks is known for his portraits and exploration of everyday life. Since the sixties, Mr. Hicks has distinguished himself as an artist and educator. He emerged during the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s, producing powerful images rooted in self-discovery and social consciousness. By the late 1970s, he was preoccupied with autonomous form and giving his full attention to investigating the language of engraving. Throughout his career, Mr. Hicks has remained a committed student of art history, learning and mastering engraving techniques pioneered by giants like Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijin (1606-1669), and Mauricio Lasansky (b.1914), with whom he studied at the State University of Iowa. His prints have been included in many exhibitions, including, “Impressional Expressions: Black American Graphics” at the Smithsonian Institution and The Studio Museum in Harlem. An edition of the work, Black Boy, was featured in the exhibition titled, “Leon Hicks: The Ingenious Line,” organized by Fisk University in 2012.
