Eugene Feldman (American, 1921-1975)

Feldman is known for pioneering offset lithography, collage, and photography techniques. He was also the founder of Falcon Press in 1948, attended the Philadelphia Museum School of Art, and was Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania. He said of his work, “My inks are my paints and the paper my canvas. . . . Respect for the materials is necessary. I think this respect leads to a desire to explore, to learn what the juxtaposition of type, line, color, space and photograph can create.” He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for Research in Photo-Offset Lithography and published books and several portfolios of prints, many through the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
