Biography from Askart.com:
Al Blaustein, born in 1924 in New York City, built his career in that city, becoming an established printmaker* and painter of landscapes, studio interiors, and figure subjects.  In his early work, Blaustein concentrated on texture and patterning and created compositions with small, detailed elements, but broadened his approach after working on a mural in 1952.

Blaustein received his formal art training at Cooper Union* following three years of active military duty during World War II.  Commissions for Life magazine and the British Overseas Food Corporation in East Africa in 1948 and 1949, followed by a three-year Prix de Rome* fellowship, 1954-1957, and grants from the American Academy of Arts and Letters*, 1958; and the Guggenheim Foundation*, 1958, enabled Blaustein to travel extensively throughout the fifties.

He had teaching positions at Yale University, 1959-1962; Pratt Institute* of Arts, 1959-1970; and Pratt Graphics Center, 1964-1969.
