Jim Steg: New Work

Jim Steg: New Work

Jim Steg (American, 1922 –2001) was the most influential printmaker to be based in New Orleans in the twentieth century. Steg arrived in New Orleans in the early 1950s to teach printmaking at Newcomb College. During his long and productive career, he used almost every known printmaking method and even pioneered several of his own. This exhibition reveals Steg as both an innovator in the field of printmaking, and an artist at the forefront of several major twentieth-century movements.
