About

York Avenue, Sunday Morning. 1939. Drypoint. Kraeft 78. 7 3/4 x 12 7/8 (sheet 8 x 12). Edition 100. Provenance: Estate of David Llewellyn Reese, New York. A rich impression with plate tone printed on white wove paper. Signed, dated and inscribed 'Ed 100' in pencil. Housed in a 15 x 19 1/2-inch dramatic black modernist frame with subtle red highlights. Landeck wrote 'I worked up in that area. They were just building the medical center at that time.' (Weill Cornell Medical Center). ----------------------------------------------------------------- Armin Landeck was born in 1905 in Crandon, Wisconsin. He received his Bachelors of Architecture from Columbia University in 1927, and studied life drawing with George B. Bridgman at the Art Students League. In the 1940s Landeck met English printmaker Stanley William Hayter, and furthered his study of printmaking at the school-workshop Atelier 17. Landeck began printmaking while still at Columbia University, and bought a second-hand press from the Kelton Company that he used to pull his first print in 1927. He married the same year and spent the following year and a half on his honeymoon traveling and studying the art and architecture of Europe, drawing and etching plates along the way. In 1929 when he returned to New York, he was unable to get a job at an architectural firm, and he moved his family to East Cornwall, Connecticut. He decided to devote his time to printmaking and teaching. In 1931, he was offered a teaching position at the Brearly School, an independent school for girls, and remained there until his retirement in 1958. In the fall of 1934 he and Martin Lewis, opened the School for Printmakers at George Miller's lithography studio. However, the school only remained open through the winter of 1935 due to the economic climate. From 1934-1942, Landeck was very productive, creating cityscapes representing a lonely and barren New York City. These won him popular and critical acclaim, and established his reputation as a skillful printmaker. In 1940 he met Stanley William Hayter who invited him to his workshop Atelier 17, where Landeck learned engraving and the use of the burin. He produced his first copper engraving at this time. During the following ten years he continued to use drypoint and etching in his prints as well as pure copper engraving, but engraving would become his preferred medium. He won fourteen awards during this time, including three for his etching, Rooftop.
