Stanley William Hayter (1901-1988), a preeminent, influential printmaker, and founder of Atelier 17, was a strong advocate for experimentation and development of new printing techniques as a tool for artistic ideas. Hayter’s personal checklist of distinctive prints and their importance to the understanding of the graphic arts in the 20th century are featured in this exhibition of 54 works. Included are etchings, lithographs and other printmaking techniques by Marc Chagall, Henry Moore, and other significant visionaries and technical innovators such as André Masson, Max Ernst, Joan Miró, Karl Schrag, and Mauricio Lasansky.

This exhibition is generously supported by the Helena Foundation.
