This collection consists of 24 lithographic prints and one plate created by Professor Sol Kent Carson.
Sol Kent Carson was born June 7, 1917. He attended the Tyler School of Fine Arts and studied under Boris Blai the founding
Dean of the School of Art. While a student, Carson began his career as a printmaker and oil painter working for the WPA in
the 1930s, where he learned his craft with other fellow artists. He served as the Director of Visual Education at Temple University
for many years before moving to California in 1962. His landscape oil paintings present the fluidity of natural environment
with dramatic color combinations. Most of the ink lithographs draw from his Jewish heritage and African American culture.
Carson resides in Los Gatos, California.
