A fine impression of this relatively rare print.

Lozowick attended Kiev Art School from the age of 12 to 14, at which point he emigrated to the US. In New York he studied for three years at the National Academy of Design, then attended Ohio State, worked as a lithographer, and traveled extensively in Europe and Russia between 1919 and 1924. With this exposure to cubism and Russian modernism, combined with his talent as a draughtsman, he was able to help adapt cubism/modernism to America, creating an exciting new idiom called Precisionism.

By 1972 it was clear to the art world, and to Lozowick as well, that his Precisionist work represented a high point in American modernist art, and - although he had made many accessible and appealing realistic prints after his initial work in this idiom - he returned to it at this point near the end of his career, making a few original works in addition to additional editions of earlier classics. Checkered Tablecloth is arguably his most significant new work created at this time. A small edition of 20 was made, with no additional edition, so it is rarely encountered on the market.
