Armin Landeck

Landeck was born in Wisconsin, in 1905, but was educated in New York at Columbia University School of Architecture, and stayed most of his entire life in the New York area. After making his first etching, he traveled to Europe in 1928-1929 to gain more knowledge about the techniques of graphic arts. Returning to New York City, he joined forces with Martin Lewis and George Miller to start a school for printmakers at Miller's studio. The majority of Landeck's architectural scenes of the buildings, rooftops, and streets of New York give the viewer a feeling of quietness, loneliness, and mystery. One sees in each of his prints a relationship to the solitude seen in the works of Edward Hopper. This can be felt in Landeck's drypoint, "York Avenue, Sunday Morning." The shadows, gas tanks, bridge, and avenue leading up to the white exterior of the New York Hospital, project the city's isolation and emptiness.
