Stow Wengenroth (American, 1906 – 1978)
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Wengenroth spent his life capturing the beauty and serenity of his region. He studied at the Art Students League and with Wayman Adams at the Grand Central School of Art. He produced his first print in 1931, a year in which he began his association with master printer, George Miller. That relationship lasted 30 years and helped to make the reputation of both men.
Wengenroth is considered a master lithographer because of his impeccable craftsmanship and the rich tonalities for his landscapes. Andrew Wyeth once called Wengenroth “America’s greatest artist working in black and white.”
