Tassos

 

(full name Tassos Alevizos). Born Mar. 25, 1914, in Messini. Greek printmaker.

Tassos, who studied at the School of Fine Arts in Athens, developed as an artist in the 1930’s while working for the progressive democratic press. He has produced expressive engravings dedicated to the Greek people’s struggle against fascism. Since the 1950’s he has worked chiefly in the technique of woodcut. Examples of his woodcuts are the tonal The Island of Hydra (1952), the colored The Fishermen (1958), and The Civil War, a triptych begun in the 1960’s. Tassos’ best works are noted for a striking harmony of form and movement and a fundamental laconicism of composition.
