American, 1916 - 1994
Related Content

Printmaker and painter André Racz was born in Cluj, Romania, and studied at the University of Bucharest. After moving to Paris he worked at Atelier 17, the famed print workshop established by Stanley William Hayter. Surrealism was a dominant style, and much of the work being done there drew on dreams and the subconscious.

Racz taught painting at Columbia University in New York City from 1951 until 1983. His work is in collections in the United States and abroad.
