Altman's "Slab Cabin Hill."

Gallery Features Work
Of Harold Altman

"The Chagall lithograph is now worth
$54,000. The sofa? Perhaps a few hundred
dollars. Of course, not every work of art will

appreciate so dramatically. That's why so many
people come to us. Just as an interior designer
helps you put together the right environment,

Park West Gallery, in
Southfield is hosting a new
exhibition of lithographs and
etchings by graphic artist
Harold Altman. The exhibit
focuses on Altman's precise
technique of depicting famous
parks and street markets, and
includes a retrospect of 78
lithographs and etchings
celebrating his 32 years of
printwork.
Altman's etchings and
lithographs of park and
market scenes • are
represented in the Boston
Museum of Fine Arts, the Los
Angeles County Museum, the
Museum of Modern Art, New
York City, the Smithsonian
Institution-and the San Fran-
cisco Museum of Art.
Altman was born in 1924,
one of 11 children of a New
York pushcart peddler. The
artist was exposed early to
the old market street of New
York City's Lower East Side.
Among his earliest memories
are visits with his father to
these market streets with
their vibrant life and color.

we help you build an art collection. And it
doesn't have to be expensive. You could easily
collect an appreciable work of art for under
$1,000 . . . See for yourself. Visit the gallery. It's
not at all intimidating. In fact, it's quite
comfortable . . . Like your favorite sofa."

FRIDAY, AUGUST 17, 1990

Altman went to France in
1949 as a student under the
G.I. Bill, returning to the
States in 1952, where he
taught for the next 25 years
at various universities.
His first lithographs were
created in 1961 when he was
a fellow at the Tamarind
Lithography Workshop. In
1964, while printing his in-
taglio prints at the Atellar
George LeBlanc in Paris, he
discovered the French litho
shops. After working at
several shops there, in 1973
he began working at Mourlot,
where he now works each
winter.
Altman has received
numerous awards, grants and

fellowships, including two
Guggenheim Fellowships, a
National Institute of the Arts
and Letters Award and a Na-
tional Endowment for the
Arts Grant.
The Harold Altman exhibit
continues through
