Salvatore Pinto

(American, 1905–1966)

Wood engraving

John L. Severance Fund 1993.211



Wood engraving, which had been used extensively during the 19th century for book and magazine illustration, was revived in the 1930s. Pinto was a master of the technique, creating a rich, luminous field of contrasting textures and rhythms. Mills conveys the artist's fascination with the interlocking patterns and tactile surfaces associated with the complex architectural structures of a growing industrialized society.
