Originally from Detroit, Carl E. Schwartz (1935-2014) studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Chicago. He taught figure drawing and painting at the North Shore Art League for nearly thirty years. He and Kay Hofmann [sic], a sculptor in Chicago, were married for a time. His work is in numerous private, corporate, and museum collections. The Library owns three other works by Schwartz, “Iron Mountain, Michigan No.3,” “The Village: Carl Sandburg,” and “Chess Game.”
