He was by nature a communicator and teacher, and attracted many hundreds of artists to work alongside him in the famous workshop Atelier 17, which he founded in Paris. At the center of the avant-garde in Paris and for a decade in New York, he was closely involved in the Surrealist and Abstract Expressionist movements and was a friend and inspiration to many leading figures. Through his pioneering, innovative techniques, in particular his invention of simultaneous intaglio and surface color printing, he has exercised a profound influence on the teaching and practice of printmaking throughout the world."
