Artists Who Have Worked at Atelier 17 (Paris & New York, 1927-1955)

The following list of artists who have worked at Atelier 17 has been compiled largely from exhibition catalogues. Additional names have been supplied by Stanley William Hayter. During the course of personal interviews, the author asked the artists to recall the names of their former colleagues at the workshop. Once a substantial list had been established, questionnaires prepared for this exhibition were sent to those artists who could not be interviewed in person.

Attempts have been made to verify the accuracy of this list. The author recognizes that it is incomplete. Nonetheless, this compilation represents the most complete group of names gathered to date. Since no written records of the membership of Atelier 17 have been kept, it has been impossible to determine the exact dates when an artist was at the workshop. Moreover, some artists could not remember precisely when they had been members of the workshop. Hence three general, chronological categories, corresponding to the three main phases in the history of Atelier 17, have been used to give a general indication of the period when an artist was associated with the workshop. - Atelier 17: A 50th Anniversary Retrospective Exhibition; (1977) Joann Moser; Elvehjem Art Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI., reprinted by permission of the author.
