“It was the time when surrealism and all kinds of -isms were in the air, and I remember how I finally decided the only thing to do is to be yourself. One thing I always had was a terrific love for human beings and people, and so I just painted with that thought in mind and immediately became quite successful with my easel work.”- Marion Greenwood

“The turbulent social and political events of the 1930s were major contributors to my early development of a point of view. I was able to feel the pulse of that period and was fascinated with the faces and activities of the people around me, a fascination with their work, play, determination, strength, greed and evil.” Abe Blashko

Born in Whitman, Massachusetts, Lawrence Nelson Wilbur traveled to Boston and Los Angeles before settling in New York. In 1925, he enrolled in the Grand Central Art School where he studied under Harvey Dunn, N.C. Wyeth, and Pruett Carter. As a photo-engraving finisher, he worked for the finest engraving shops in New York, as well as doing work for major magazines. The meticulous nature of this work aided Wilbur’s artistic development. Throughout his prolific art career, which spanned seven decades, he produced wood engravings, woodcuts, linoleum block prints and lithographs, as well as paintings and drawings.

His works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, National Gallery, Philadelphia Museum, Library of Congress, and more, and he received numerous awards for his art, including the Audubon Artist’s medal of honor for a self-portrait in oil in 1957. He was a member of the Salmagundi Club of New York, Painters and Sculptors Society of New Jersey, and Society of America Graphic Artists.
