Woodcut Prints by Todros Geller

November 15, 2011 to February 26, 2012

In 1918, Ukrainian-born Todros Geller settled in Chicago, becoming an influential artist, a tireless promoter of Jewish art, a passionate educator, and the acknowledged "Dean of Chicago's Jewish artists." He was perhaps best known for his woodcut prints, which were exhibited and disseminated in a remarkable variety of venues and formats. Geller’s prints were exhibited at The Art Institute of Chicago, appeared in popular Jewish periodicals, and on the covers of New Year’s greeting cards. According to one report, there was a time when a Todros Geller print hung in almost every Jewish living room in Chicago.
