William E. Smith 1913-1997
He carved deep furrows into a print block to create stark contrasts of black and white. One of several African American printmakers who gathered around the Karamu House in Cleveland, Smith often depicted urban scenes of poverty and struggle.
William E. Smith (1913-1997) moved to Cleveland from Chattanooga, Tennessee at the age of twelve after his mother’s death. During the early 1930s, he studied at the Playhouse Settlement of the Neighborhood Association of Cleveland (now called Karamu House), one of the oldest ethnically and racially diverse cultural institutions in the United States. Much of his art work is displayed at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
