    My first thought on both the style and subject was 1930s - 40s WPA mural work.

    I stretched out only the first one a bit, the others are just inverted and color contrast : Looks simple, but it's sure NOT!!!

    Agreed with bakers, looks WPA-ish to me too, (or maybe Commie!) plus looks more like a wood engraving than a wood cut. I really like this and would buy it if I saw it, not caring who the artist is.

    The medium looks like linocut to me. GREAT picture, by the way, and by an accomplished artist!

    Good for you, great image. Here's one of my "social justice" woodcuts from the late 1940's:
