Biographical Historical Note

Seymour Rosofsky was part of a generation of post-war, independent-minded Chicago artists who bucked the trends of abstraction, minimalism and conceptual art coming from New York in the mid-20th century. Rosofsky wrestled with his experiences through a staunchly figurative, surreal style. He is considered a founding member of the Chicago Imagist tradition.
