Hope & Yearning for Light

Child in an Explosion of Light, showing a baby laying in a cradle turned towards a window where an abundance of sun rays comes through was a linocut included in the artist’s proposed folio titled: Sehnsucht nach Licht (Yearning for Light) : 8 Original Linoleum schnitte von Emerich Göndör (8 original Linoleum cuts by Emerich Göndör) which was to be published in Vienna, Austria but not believed to have been issued other than an incomplete copy held by this archive (7 of 8 plates) as well as the full compliment (including one of the artist dated  25 in the plate) held by the Leo Baeck Institute for Jewish Studies in New York City.
