Biography Helen K Siegl
Helen Siegl (Vienna, 1924 - Philadelphia, 2009) studied architecture and design at the Academie für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna, Austria. In 1952 she moved to Montreal, Canada, married American conservator Theodor Siegl, and moved to Philadelphia.
Siegl's unusual printmaking technique— often combining various kinds of blocks and plates to create an image, including handmade plaster blocks she designed when wood was scarce in Vienna during World War II— helped garner her reputation as a widely respected printmaker.
Siegl gained a reputation for both her individual signed and numbered prints and for her book illustrations. Her book illustrations include The Dancing Palm Tree, which was chosen one of The Year's Best
