The piece is dedicated to Mr. Herzig’s wife, Rivette. View Artist Information Emigrating from Switzerland to Canada in 1953, Mr. Herzig established himself as a well-known Toronto printer and publisher. In 1965, he and Bill Somerville founded Herzig Somerville, a prepress company that supplied colour separations to the printing industry. An offshoot of that business, Mintmark Press, focused on printing fine-art books. Outside his business interests, Mr. Herzig had a long-standing passion for the arts. For many years, he was involved with the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, serving as chairman in 1980. For 40 years, Mr. Herzig graduated from OCAD University’s sculpture program in 1995 and showed his work at several galleries as well as outdoors, and in a one-man show at the Canadian Sculpture Society in April 2002. His work communicates a message of gender equality, exploring the balance between male and female relationships and inspired by acts of suppression and violence against women.
