This hand-colored etching by Jose Gurvich is signed and numbered in pencil from the edition of only 100 (numbered in Roman Numerals). Gurvich was born Zusmanas Gurvicius into a Lithuanian Jewish Family in 1927. His family emigrated to Uruguay in 1932 to escape persecution. As a young artist, he studied with Joaquin Torres Garcia and worked in his studio until Garcia's death. After this, Gurvich traveled Europe and spent time living in a Kibbutz in Israel. In 1970, a few years before the end of his life, he took his family to New York City where he died at the age of 47 at the height of his career.
