This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Following is a biography provided by the artist's daughter, M Hnizdovsky:

Jacques Hnizdovsky was born in the Ukraine in 1915 and studied art in Warsaw and Zagreb. He had an early interest in the woodcut, particularly those of Albrecht Durer and the Japanese.

Shortly after he arrived in this country in 1949, A. Hyatt Mayor of the Metropolitan Museum of Art chose one of his woodcuts for a Purchase Award at a 1950 Minneapolis Institute of Art print exhibition. It was a turning point in his career and his life. From that moment he was determined to make his livelihood as an artist.

By the end of the 1950s, he had settled into the woodcut as his primary medium. In 1962 he was awarded First Prize at the Boston Printmakers annual exhibition. He was invited to participate in the Contemporary U.S. Graphic Arts exhibition which traveled to the U.S.S.R. in 1963, as well as a similar exhibition to Japan in 1967. His woodcuts were included in the Triennale Internazionale della Xilographica in Italy in 1972. In 1977 shows of his woodcuts were held at the Long Beach Art Museum, California, and Yale University, and in 1978 and 1982 at the University of Virginia and at the Hermitage Museum of Norfolk, Virginia, in 1981.

He received a Tiffany Fellowship in 1961, and fellowships from the following: MacDowell Colony in 1963, 1971, 1976, 1977; Yaddo Foundation in 1978; Ossabaw Foundation in 1980; Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in 1979, 1981, 1982, 1983, and 1984.

In 1975 a catalogue raisonne of his woodcuts Hnizdovsky Woodcuts 1944-1975 was published by Pelican Publishing Co. of Gretna, Louisiana. In 1987 an updated version Jacques Hnizdovsky Woodcuts and Etchings was published, including all graphic works made during his lifetime.

Hnizdovsky has contributed illustrations to The Poems of John Keats, 1964; The Poems of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1967; Tree Trails of Central Park, 1971; Flora Exotica, 1972; The Poems of Thomas Hardy, 1979; The Traveler's Tree, 1980; The Poetry of Robert Frost, 1981; Signum Et Verbum, 1981; A Green Place, 1982; Birds and Beasts, 1990; and Behind The King's Kitchen in 1992.

Jacques Hnizdovsky died on November 8, 1985.
