James “Jim” Louis Steg (1922-2001) was an internationally renowned printmaker and professor of art at Newcomb College of Tulane University. Born in Virginia, Steg served in the Army during World War II and went on to earn a bachelor degree and a Master of Fine Art degree from the University of Iowa. Steg spent most of his lifetime in New Orleans, teaching at Newcomb College for 43 years. As a professor, Steg inspired generations of students with not only his mastery of traditional printmaking techniques, but also his creativity and innovation in the field. With his endless artistic exploration, Steg made a profound contribution to American art. Today, the award winning work of Jim Steg is featured in the permanent collections of more than sixty museums and institutions around the world. The New Orleans Museum of Art presented a retrospective exhibition of the graphic work of Jim Steg in 1978. The first critical examination of this pioneering printmaker’s career, Jim Steg: New Work, was open at NOMA from April 7th to October 7th, 2017.
