  • Mr. Hutchinson, an academician of the Royal Canadian Academy and curator of the Hamilton Art Museum, carves wood blocks for print making. The Canadian depression of 1928 has been a strong influence on his art which reflects the strength and vigor of working people. He talks of his procedures from pencil sketches to wood carving to prints. His depression prints, showing the desolation and hopelessness of the industrial strife, are numbered among his most famous.
