LEON DOLICE (1892 - 1960) Born in Vienna, printmaker Leon Dolice studied art in Europe and emigrated to New York, settling in Greenwich Village. Befriended by fellow artists George Luks and Herbert Roth, he pursued etching and used his skills to chronicle the rapidly changing streetscape of Manhattan. He established a studio the shadow of the Third Avenue El, a favorite subject for his work. Though he dabbled in other styles, Dolice was at heart both a realist and figurative artist. His work is in numerous permanent collections including the Museum of the City of New York, the New York Public Library, the Lauinger Library of Georgetown University and the Print Club of Philadelphia.
