Isac Friedlander

Friedlander was born in Mitau, Latvia, and studied art in Rome. He began his career as a graphic artist in 1917, and became prolific as a wood engraver and etcher. After coming to the United States in 1929, he depicted New York during the Great Depression; Labor and Industry in America; the Inhumanity of the Holocaust; and Life in the Circus. Friedlander's woodcuts show a close proximity to the German Expressionist prints of the early twentieth century.
