"Ward is ranked among the finest American wood engravers of
the 20th century." — artoftheprint.com
One of the finest
American wood engravers of the twentieth century and an outstanding
artist of any era, Lynd Ward (1905-85) created a series of fantastic
visual novels. The powerful imagery and psychological intensity of his
wordless works have elicited comparisons to the writings of Hawthorne,
Melville, and Poe, and they have exercised an enormous influence over
latter-day graphic novelists.
Ward's tutelage included studying under
the direction of German woodcut and engraving master Hans Alexander
Mueller. He published his first book, Gods' Man: A Novel in
Woodcuts,
in 1929. Like its successors, including Mad Man's Drum,
Gods' Man
consists solely of Ward's woodcuts, telling its story
through imagery alone.
Ward's hauntingly rendered works have been
honored with such prestigious awards as the Library of Congress Award,
the National Academy of Design Print Award, the New York Times
Best Illustrated Award, the Caldecott Medal, and the Regina Award.
