A catalogue of the graphic works of Herbert L. Fink, an artist of growing stature whose recent honors include a citation by the Society of Illustrators for some of the “best book illustrations for the year” (John Gardner’s The King’s Indian, 1973) and his 1979 election to the National Academy of Design.
Fink’s work is represented in the Albright Knox Museum, the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Library of Congress, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and, as he humorously adds, “hangs” in the United States Supreme Court.
Fink’s subjects include landscapes, figure studies, and surrealistic or allegorical representations. Obvious influences on the artist are the American impressionists he saw during the 1930s and 1940s, his teacher and idol, George Grosz, the Barbizon School, and such surrealists as Pieter Breugel. He has evolved from an analytical cubist to a realist, however surrealistic his juxtaposition of images may be.
