Stow Wegnenroth studied at the Art Students League and the Grand Central School of Art in New York City. He spent many summers in Woodstock, NY, and Eastport, ME. In 1931, he began producing lithographic prints at time when lithography was gaining greater significance as a fine art process. Previously, the printing process had only served commercial purposes. In his lithographs, Wengenroth brings out the personalities of owls, gulls, chickadees, and other birds. Aside from birds, his other favorite subjects were New England houses and churches, as well as the coastline and the Brooklyn Bridge. Wegenroth's luminous prints have subtle tonal gradations, ranging from pure white to dense black, creating a sense of timelessness.
