Emlen Pope Etting (24 Aug 1905 – 20 Jul 1993)

"Philadelphia-born Emlen Etting was a painter, sculptor, scholar of French literature, and book illustrator. His figurative paintings and drawings depict the loneliness of modernity and the extravagance of nature. Etting illustrated works by Paul Valéry and Franz Kafka, among others. His three films produced before 1940 are milestones of poetic filmmaking." —R. Bruce Elder
