    • "Two of Chicago s most influential printmakers and painters, Eleanor Coen (b. 1916) and Max Kahn (1901-2005) were the indomitable artistic couple of the 40s and 50s, cultivating and spreading print techniques they learned in Mexico a decade earlier. Kahn, who studied in Paris under a student of Rodin's in the 20s, is credited with introducing color lithography to the United States, and Coen s incisive and penetrating investigations of urban landscapes and figures - particularly children - are considered iconic Chicago images."

Moreover, the exhibition is equally important because it will also help Ukrainians acquaint themselves with their own cultural heritage."
