Leon Kroll

Leon Kroll was a painter, lithographer, teacher, and art critic, born in 1884, in New York City. He studied at the Art Students League, and with John H. Twachtman, before continuing to Paris at the Academie Julian. He remained naturalistic in his lithographs and paintings of landscape, portraits, and still life, during a time when other artists were moving in the direction of abstraction or modernism. Kroll's vision is not total realism but a transposing of nature according to his individual feelings. He shows sensitivity and romanticism in his portraits of women, as can be seen in the lithograph, "Monique," commissioned by the Print Club of Cleveland, in 1945.
