WARREN COLESCOTT (1921-2018) An American artist best known for his satirical Etchings. Working in that area which he calls that black zone between tragedy and high comedy, where with a little pull or push one way or the other you can transmute screams into laughter, Colescott examines the society of today, its virtues and its inequities. To strengthen satire, he juxtaposes humor and violence; to reinforce a comment on a current situation, he makes use of historical reference. The humor is bittersweet; the images are thought-provoking, the quality of the printmaking is outstanding.
