Hayter was closely linked to the Surrealist movement but his engravings for Samuel Beckett’s poem ‘Still’ show his interest in Analytical Cubism. The portfolio contains six engravings, three in colour and three in black and white, of which one is a portrait of the writer.

About the Artist

Stanley Hayter 1901–1988

English artist Stanley William Hayter is regarded as one of the 20th century’s most important printmakers. In 1927, in order to promote and develop new techniques in print, he founded the Atelier 17 studio in Paris, which attracted artists such as Pablo Picasso, Yves Tanguy, Marc Chagall and Salvador Dali. At the outbreak of World War II, Hayter moved Atelier 17 to New York. Hayter’s first book, 'New Ways of Gravure' (1949), became an indispensable text for printmakers.
