John Himmelfarb (b. 1946) is known for his large-scale black and white drawings, although he has worked in paint, clay, and bronze, and has employed woodcut and lithography in his works on paper. Complex and narrative in subject, Himmelfarb’s works combine representational and abstract worlds within a child-like perspective of bright colors and strong contours. His paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures can be found in the Art Institute of Chicago, the British Museum, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C. The Chicago native continues to live and work in his hometown.
