Albert Abramovitz


Color wood engraving, c.1935, edition about 25 or less. Signed in the block, lower right, with the double ‘A’ chop;
signed and titled in pencil. Printed on thin Japan paper with large margins. In good condition other than some wrinkling

‘Wuxtry!’ was the newsboy’s shout when on the streets with a special edition. The actual meaning of the word is, “Extra! Extra!
Read all about it.”

Abramovitz was one of the most ardent social realists during the Great Depression, doing almost 20 works for the Federal
Arts Project from 1935-1939. In the early 1930’s he documented the Moscow Subway construction until completion, then
returned to the United States, living in East Meadow, until his death in 1963.
