About

In 1949, Armin Landeck created "Window on 14th St", a drypoint and engraving in an edition of 100. It is the view through the artist's studio window. His brushes are stored on the desk that sits under the window. This image was awarded the purchase prize from the Brooklyn Museum in 1950. Armin Landeck, printmaker and educator, was born in Crandon, Wisconsin on June 4, 1905. He studied at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and received his Bachelors of Architecture from Columbia University in 1927. While in New York, he studied life drawing with George B. Bridgman at the Art Students’ League. Landeck studied printmaking while at Columbia University and produced his first prints in 1927. He married that same year and consequently travelled for eighteen months in Europe, rendering the architecture in drawing and etching. Upon his return home in 1929, he was unable to procure employment as an architect so he moved to East Cornwall, Connecticut and made the decision to focus on printmaking and teaching. In 1931, he joined the faculty of the Brearly School, an all-girls private school located on the upper east side of Manhattan, and taught there until his retirement in 1958. Landeck joined forces with fellow artist Martin Lewis in the fall of 1934 when they opened the School for Printmakers at George Miller’s 14th Street lithography studio. They offered classes on lithography, etching, drypoint, mezzotint, and wood engraving but their school was forced to close in 1935 due to the economy. Landeck met Stanley William Hayter in the 1940s and began to work at Aterlier 17 where he made his first engraving. Landeck was a member of and exhibited with the Society of American Etchers and the Society of American Graphic Artists. He was elected an Academician in the National Academy of Design, and was a member of the Institute of Arts and Letters, and the Institute of the American Academy. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1953. Landeck’s work is included in numerous collections, such as the Ackland Art Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the Georgia Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Milwaukee Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Spencer Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Swedish National Museum, and the Kaiser Friedrich Museum in Berlin. Armin Landeck died in Litchfield, Connecticut on December 1, 1984.
