Midsummer

Midsummer

This is a sheet from the book, Improvisations, 1954, that was organized by the Chicago chapter of the Artist’s Equity Association. 40 artists were each given a lithographic plate which they worked directly. Sponsors from the paper and print industries helped fund it. Zeke chose to depict the friendship of two boys in a playground, one negro and the other white. It amused him that he had to model his own hands for this drawing and that they look too old for boys’ hands.
