Hecht Joseph
Joseph Hecht is born in Lodz (Poland) in 1891. He studies at the Art Academy in Krakow (1909 - 1914). He lives for Norway where he works and exhibits until 1919. He arrives in Paris in 1920 and produces many engravings on the animal theme. His prints are in the period of 1926 to 1938. During this period Joseph Hecht works with Stanley William Hayter building Atelier 17, legendary studio which influences artists like Picasso, Chagall, or Giacometti. In 1929, Joseph Hecht becomes a founding member of “The Young Contemporary Gravure”. He becomes closer to the association of “Independent Painters Engravers” founded by Jean Emile Laboureur and Raoul Dufy in 1923.
He exhibits his works at the Autumn Salon and the Salon des Independents, wins two gold medals at the World's Fair in Paris in 1937. His work is then exhibited in most major cities worldwide. Descended from a Jewish family, he is obliged to leave Paris before the start of World War II. Joseph Hecht takes refuge in Savoy and works as a farmer. After the war he returns to Paris and is in poor health.
Hayter, back from New York, joins him and together they produce a copper engraving, « The Drowned”. Joseph Hecht, encouraged from his friend, begins to produce numerous prints and develops a new method of embossing. He dies in 1951 of a heart attack in his apartment in Paris.
