Additional Information

Stanley William Hayter was an British painter and printmaker associated in the 1930s with Surrealism and from 1940 with Abstract Expressionism. Regarded as one of the most significant printmakers of the 20th century, Hayter founded the legendary Atelier 17 studio in Paris in 1927.

At the outbreak of World War II, Hayter moved Atelier 17 to New York City and taught printmaking at The New School. The artists Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko made prints at the New York Atelier 17.

During the war, Hayter collaborated with Roland Penrose and other artists to design camouflage for the military. Hayter returned to Paris, with his Atelier 17, in 1950.
