Richard Mock was a lifelong painter whose work ranged from a cartoonish, politically charged Neo-Expressionism through portraiture and self-portraiture to bright, paint-laden abstractions. He was best known for the satiric linocut illustrations on social and political issues that appeared on the Op-Ed page of The New York Times from 1980 to 1996, in other New York-based newspapers and in worldwide publications.
This is a striking print on paper in yellow, black, and white.
Mock's linoleum prints reflected the influence of the German Expressionist Max Beckmann (1884-1950) and the Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913).
