Biographical Notes
Evan Wm. Wolfson (02/19/2006)
The artist William Wolfson was my grandfather. He was born in 1893 or 1894 (there does not appear to be a birth record) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I understand he studied under Robert Henri while at the New York Art Students League, and was considered part of the "Ash-Can School." He taught at Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie Mellon University), and much later at the Otis Art Institute. He died in 1966 in Los Angeles, CA, leaving a wife and one son. His art is in a number of museum and private collections. He is best known for his lithographs, done primarily in the 1920s and 30s in Pittsburgh and New York City, as well as paintings done in the 1950s and 60s in Los Angeles. He did much of the commercial artwork for Readers Digest in the mid-1940s, and I understand some of this work was done under the name "Morel". I will try to submit additional information in the future.
