Proof that small is wonderful. A master woodcut artist. If you're in Santa Fe, the New Mexico Museum of Art (just off the square) has some wonderful pieces in the permanent collection -- and a wall of wonderfully done framed reprints in the gift shop.

If you appreciate art, especially woodblock printmaking, this is a wonderful history of one of America's best! Very well organized with a great selection of his prints from different artistic periods.
