The Optimisit and the Pessimist - Hand Colored Etching by Curt Frankenstein. I had the privilege to meet Mr. Frankenstein at the Columbus Art Festival over 30 years ago where I purchased three pieces of his art. He is a Holocaust survivor indicated by the numbers tattooed on his wrist. His pieces can be humorous and serious at the same time and have hints of political satire as indicated in the pieces. No social statement in this one - just flat out funny.
