Entitled The Cock Fight
this 1963 woodcut on paper abstracted Rennsylvania river scene is by New York artist and illustrator Hope Brooks Meryman (1931-1975). Meryman was a master at capturing the feeling of a moment in large-scale woodblocks. Meryman traveled extensively in Europe, creating large landscapes and vignettes of her travels. Much of her work features scenes of New York. She studied extensively with Antonio Frasconi, John Groth, Seong Moy and George Grosz.
