Leon Dolice

Born in Vienna in 1892, Leon Dolice came to New York in 1920 and spent the rest of his life creating etchings, linocuts, paintings and pastels of New York scenes. There are etchings of the city parks, vanishing street scenes, neighborhoods, and landmarks. Linocuts, with subjects such as the Little Church Around the Corner, Central Park, MacDougal Alley, are especially appealing. The work may strike you as a bit on the sentimental side, but we're unrepentant fans.

You can see many of Dolice's works at Vintage New York, an exhibition of the city's landmarks, people, and events. It's on now at the Grace Institute, 1233 2nd [64th/6th] 212.832.7605. More on Mr. Dolice and Vintage New York here. A good source for Dolice reproductions ($20-$40) is at Art and Frame 2000.
