While in Paris he was a member and juror of the Paris Salon, and won the Grand Prize at the Universal Exposition in Rome and Turin, Italy. In the 1920s Abramovitz emigrated to America, first the west coast then settled in New York City where he lived for the rest of his life.

A remarkable original etching by Leonard Baskin, this image measures 17 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches, published c. 1960s in an edition of 200, not in the Fern & O'Sullivan catalog, pencil signed and numbered, framed. Baskin attended Yale University School of Fine Arts and after a three year stint in the Navy, studied art under the GI Bill, traveling to France and Italy. Baskin began his career as a printmaker in the late 1940s, beginning with simple linocuts, but quickly progressing to dramatic wood engravings, then later etchings and lithographs. Known for his graphic images created by the simple interplay of black on white, combined with his dramatic use of line, Baskin remains one of America's greatest printmakers.
