This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Margaret Lowengrund, a realist painter and printmaker with exhibition success in the 1930s and 1940s, made her mark on the art world as founder of a well-known New York City print workshop and as Associate Editor of Art Digest magazine. Lowengrund was founder and Director of the Contemporaries Graphic Arts Center, whose name evolved to The Pratt, and later to the Pratt Graphics Center, upon association with Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

Though she died in 1957 from cancer at the relatively young age of fifty-five, Lowengrund, an ardent advocate of lithography, is credited with laying the groundwork for, and playing a major role in, the revival of printmaking following World War II, through the 1960s. She established print workshops in both Manhattan and Woodstock, New York, receiving a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation in 1956, shortly before her death, to support and enlarge the Manhattan venue.

Margaret Lowengrund was born in 1902 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and studied there at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Though she studied art, Lowengrund went to work as a journalist, moving to New York City in 1923. She studied printmaking at the Art Students League with Joseph Pennell. In England she worked in lithography with A.S. Hartrick, and also studied painting with Andre L'Hote in France. While in Europe, the British Museum acquired a Lowengrund lithograph, and she exhibited a painting at the Salon d'Automne. Upon her return to New York in 1928, Lowengrund had her first one-person exhibition of prints and paintings at the Kleeman-Thorson Galleries.

Margaret Lowengrund is included in Clinton Adams book, American Lithographers, 1900-1960: The Artists and Their Printers, published in 1983 by the University of New Mexico Press. She is also discussed in "Margaret Lowengrund and The Contemporaries," in the Spring 1984 issue of Tamarind Papers.
