Stanley Hayter Prints for Sale

Stanley William Hayter (1901-1988) was born in London. He painted his first pictures at the age of 12. He studied Chemistry and geology, and worked for an Anglo - Iranian oil company. In 1926 SW Hayter decided to become an artist and left for Paris. His first 3 months there were spent at the Academie Julian, where he made his first prints (dry-points and etchings). In 1927, he set up a print-studio in his home, and in 1933, moved it to N° 17 rue Campagne-Première ; hence the name "Atelier 17". In 1958 he represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennale, and in 1960 was awarded the International Prize at the Tokyo Biennale of Engraving
