Zevi Blum (American, 1933 – 2011)
The artist Zevi Blum worked primarily in pen and ink, watercolor and etching. He began focusing more on etching in the early 1970s and developed a technique that incorporated watercolor with etching. Because of the delicate nature of the etching medium, Blum often drew his finely detailed and fanciful images in one pass, with little or no reworking. Blum was known for the magical realism in his work and was a skilled satirist, depicting topical and political subjects and medieval characters in many works. He created illustrations for such publications as Atlantic Monthly, Harper's, The New York Times Book Review, and Readers' Digest.
