The colors are bright; printed on a wove Japan paper. In 1950, Una Johnson wrote in a Brooklyn Museum catalogue, "Schanker has been a pioneer in the development of abstractions in color. A serious and expert craftsman, he has done much to advance the creative use of the woodcut in color as a vehicle of contemporary expression." He was a supervisor in the Graphic Arts section of the NYC WPA when this woodcut was made.
