Screenprint on paper
Gift of the Crump Family in Memory of Bob and Pat Kennedy Crump.

Max Cohn spent most of his career in New York City, having studied at the Art Students League in New York during the 1920s. Although it is indicative of subject matter and style from the 1930s (during the 1950s and onward he shifted towards abstraction), “Wheat Harvest” was most likely produced during the 1990s, as he returned to and re-worked early subject matter. The print is signed “MAX ARTHUR COHN” at lower right on image.
