Graphic Work by Boris Margo

 

“SHE” has raised images in the paper, surrounded by white ink over much of the paper. 

It is a very handsome piece and has a rich appearance.

Mr. Margo’s graphic works were not based on sketches.  He worked on the

printing plates, as he did on his paintings, directly and spontaneously developing them.

 

Boris Margo was an artist and part of the Surrealist branch of the New York School.  According to his New York Times obituary, he was born in Volochisk in Ukraine.  

Mr. Margo studied at the Polytechnic of Art in Odessa and with the eccentric

Cubist-Surrealist painter Pavel Filonov in what was then Leningrad.   

 

Mr. Margo immigrated to New York City in 1930, gradually becoming a member of a circle of artists that included Arshile Gorky, Milton Avery and Mark Rothko. Initially too poor to buy paints, he worked in montage, selecting fragments from magazines in a process of chance and free association. An incessant experimenter, he developed the technique of "decalcomania," a process made famous by the Surrealist painter Max Ernst in which liquid paint on one surface is transferred under pressure to another. He also invented the CELLOCUT, a forerunner of the collograph and other high-relief printmaking processes.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art  has numerous cellocuts by Mr. Margo, including one 

of “SHE ” which was an edition of only 50, another of which is featured here.

 

Some of the other museums having works by Mr. Margo include:

   Art Institute of Chicago

   Georgia Museum of Art

   Neuberger Museum of Art

   Sheldon Museum of Art

   Smith College of Art

   The Brooklyn Museum of Art

   The University Museum of  Art

   Whitney Museum of Art
