Stanley William Hayter is one of the key figures of the Surrealist movement both for his contributions as a printmaker and for his technical wizardry. Founder of Atelier 17, probably the most important print workshop of the middle third of the century, he worked with Chagall, Erenst, Giacometti, Lipchitz, and Miro. His early training as a chemist led him to one of the most important printing innovations of the 20th century, colour viscosity printing, which allowed the use of multiple colours of different viscosity oil bases to be printed in the same pass through the press, and facilitating the growth in colour etching between and after the World Wars. His prints, drawings, and paintings explored the abstract side of Surrealism. By the time of his death, he was acknowledged as "by far the finest British printmaker of this century" (Guardian). Hayter's works are to be found in many important collections of modern art including the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum (NYC) and the Pompidou in Paris; his works have been shown at major museums and important galleries all over the world.
