On Sunday, August 20 at 1 pm, to celebrate the centenary of The Etching of Figures (1915) and The Etching of Contemporary Life (1916), landmark publications both printed by Dard Hunter at the Gomez Mill House, Dr. Amy Loewenhaar-Blauweiss will speak about the life and work of William Auerbach-Levy, one of the artists whose etchings are featured in the 1916 book, along with those of his friend and printer, artist Ernest Roth, whose work will also be discussed.
The talk will touch upon both the progressive and reactionary roots of the Arts & Crafts movement, the melding of the applied and the fine arts, and will situate Auerbach-Levy in the social context of Greenwich Village's golden age as an artists' community, where he was a central figure. Auerbach-Levy would later achieve popularity not just as an etcher but also as the seminal theatre caricaturist of his generation and a member of the Algonquin Round Table. The talk will include artwork and memorabilia from the speaker's personal collection.
