About this artwork

Kraut, who earned BFA and MFA degrees from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1972 and 1976, respectively, often depicts interiors devoid of humans and marked by stillness and natural illumination, as seen in this charcoal drawing. Kraut’s use of light and perspective draws us deep into the image while at the same time maintaining a distinct separation between viewer and subject. Chicago Tribune critic Alan Artner has said about the artist, “as with poets who thrive under the strictest verse forms, Kraut is an artist who succeeds by exercising the tightest control.”
