Warrington Colescott

Washington Colescott was born in Oakland, California to Creole parents from Louisiana. He received a bachelor's and master's degree in art at the University of California. His interest in etching began in the 1950's; studying the process at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. After being audited by the I.R.S. he created a series of satirical etchings on the event. Colescott was a member of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he taught painting and printmaking for a period of 37 years. He has had many exhibits throughout the United States and abroad, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Whitney Museum of American Art. His impish and satirical images shown in his etchings, have earned him the name of "the modern Hogarth." Colescott died in 2018, at the age of 97, at his home in Wisconsin. Reference: N.Y.
