The inventor of the technique of simultaneous colour printing, revolutionary in its own right, Stanley William Hayter (1901-88) was the most influential printmaker of the twentieth century. The founder of Atelier 17 in Paris, he had contact with all the major Cubist, Surrealist and Abstract Expressionist painters of the day - an essential aspect to his life that shaped his work in a diversity of fascinating ways.
This definitive catalogue, begun under Hayter's own direction, gives full information on some 450 original prints, while spanning the artist's oeuvre as a whole with its inclusion of almost 500 illustrations. In offering such an exhaustive survey of his life's achievement, and in following the highly personal outlook of the artist's widow, this tome has established itself as an important reference work for all those concerned with twentieth-century art and printmaking. It confirms Hayter's stature as a great artist, teacher and technical innovator.
