  Charles Wheeler Locke   (1899-1983)

 
  FREEDOM, ca. 1935. Signed in pencil. The soapbox orator has attracted a typical New York audience, ranging from a newsboy in knickers to a gent in a bowler hat. Locke's political sentiments are as applicable today as they were in the great Depression of the 1930s. He taught the daytime lithography class at the Art Students League in New York and Eugene Fitsch taught the night class. Locke was one of the ten artists who formed the Contemporary Print Group in 1933.
