About this Piece

About the Artist

Mort Baranoff was born in Canada but immigrated to the US in the 1950s where he graduated from the University of Southern California with a MFA. (1959) He also holds degrees from the School of Art and Design of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (1952) finishing a three-year program in just two years. In 1952 he also studied graphic arts at Atelier 17 with Hayter in New York.

In 1960, Mort joined the faculty of The University of Texas at Austin. Although his chief interest was in studio art, particularly printmaking, he was able to teach and did teach upon occasion, art education and art history. One of his most appreciated courses was the history of modern prints. He was the first to make use of the collection of twentieth century prints given by Mr. Charles Clark to the Blanton Museum of Art (then the University Art Museum). The course was offered to seniors and graduate students. Mort was one of the faculty members to accompany art student on their first major field trip in 1961 to St. Louis, Chicago, and Kansas City. In spite of the rigors of bus travel, driving at night, and uncertain meals, his good humor and concern for the students persisted. It was he who persuaded the bus driver to stop at Columbia, Missouri, in the early morning hours to see the chapel designed by Saarinen, and also the quarters for the Art Department. Because of the fortunate encounter with a night watchman, the whole group emerged from the bus into the night chill to enter the chapel for a private viewing. The students on that trip and all those who studied with him were aware of the courage and strength of a man whom suffering and pain never forsook.
