RIP: David Levine, 83

December 29th, 2009 by Menachem Wecker

UPDATE 1/1/10: My article on David Levine appears in the Forward, titled “David Levine, 83: Hailed as the ‘King of Crosshatching,’ Family and Friends Say He Was a Painter First.”

Artist David Levine has passed away, The New York Times reports. I am considering writing something longer about him, because I met him about five years ago in his apartment and studio. I can honestly say that meeting him was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and I consider him one of the greatest artists of his generation. May he rest in peace.

Below is a photo I took of David in his studio critiquing my notebook of copies of his drawings.
