Did you know?

The Art Department at the Ohio State University produced a film entitled Stanley William Hayter: The Artist as Teacher that documented Hayter’s etching practice during his visit to campus.


Stanley William Hayter is recognized within the history of printmaking as among the most innovative and experimental practitioners of intaglio techniques. This print was made during an etching demonstration in the Art Department of Ohio State University. Hayter drew on a zinc plate rather than the usual copper, with a mass-produced Flo-Master pen not typically used for artmaking. The result is a striking abstraction that challenges the traditions of printmaking.
