Job (2:13)
1890-1968, Latvian-American

This is a stunning original wood engraving with a beautifully geometric, slightly abstracted composition. The image size is 14 x 10 1/8 inches, published in an edition of 50, c. 1950s, pencil signed, titled, and numbered. Friedlander was born in the town of Mitau, Latvia, and as a young man spent several years in prison. When he was released he traveled to Italy where he studied art and became friends with fellow expatriate Maxim Gorky. In 1929 Friedlander emigrated to the United States, becoming known for his evocative etchings and wood engravings, many with a strong political message.
