Stow Wengenroth (1906-1978) was an American artist and lithographer, born in 1906 in Brooklyn, New York. He is generally considered to be one of the finest American lithographers of the twentieth century. He studied at the Art Students League of New York from 1923 to 1927, then at the Grand Central School of Art. He was elected an Associate of the prestigious National Academy of Design in 1938, and a full Academician in 1941. He was also the author of several influential books on lithography. During his career, Wengenroth became well known for his detailed depictions of the seascapes and landscapes of New England and, in particular, Maine. He focused on shadow, light, and form to transmit detail and dimension. He is also known for his images of urban scenes of New York City, especially the nocturnal prints, portraying the beauty and serenity of the city landscape. Wengenroth’s lithographs are found in most major American collections, including the Library of Congress, Whitney Museum of American Art and Metropolitan Museum of Art.
