Who is Jacques Hnizdovsky?


JACQUES HNIZDOVSKY
b. 1915 in Pylypche, Ukraine
d. 1985 in New York, New York, USA

Jacques Hnizdovsky studied art in his youth in both Warsaw, Poland and Zagreb, Croatia. From an early age, he showed strong interest in woodcuts, becoming inspired by works of Albrecht Dürer, as well as traditional works from Japan. During his long and fruitful career, Hnizdovsky worked successfully in a range of media, yet his most memorable pieces are his woodblock prints and paintings.
 He immigrated to the United States in 1949, and became primarily focused on woodcuts. Within a year after his arrival in the U.S., Hnizdovsky decided to work as an independent artist, devoting his time solely to his own art production. Many of Hnizdovsky’s pieces depict the natural world, his woodcuts often bearing imagery of animals or plants–recurring themes are comprised of cats, sheep and trees.
