The Song of Songs: A Portfolio of Engravings
Born in Montreal in 1936, David Silverberg studied under Group of Seven master Dr. Arthur Lismer before going on to study art in Paris. He taught many students at Mount Allison University during his 32-year association with that school. He's also been Acadia Universitys Artist in Residence. Over the years Silverberg has developed his own style of engravings.concerned with a variety of subjects, in particular nature, erotica, scenes from the many countries he's visited, and various Jewish themes. In a 1980 interview, the artist describes how Judaism has affected his art, despite the commandment, "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image."
