Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) is a fine print publisher located in Bay Shore, New York founded in 1957 by Tatyana Grosman. Her vision was to make original lithographs and artist books, and she began working with artists such as Larry Rivers, Jasper Johns, and Robert Rauschenberg. The work that came out of the printshop sparked a revival of printmaking in the United States in the late 1950s and 1960s.
Bill Goldston joined Grosman in 1969 and has since worked with younger artists and master printers in the mediums of stone and offset lithography, intaglio, woodcut, digital printing, and bookmaking to continue Grosman’s legacy. Today ULAE is represented in the collections of many major museums including The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Tate Gallery in London and the National Art Museum of China in Beijing. The Museum of Modern Art in New York began acquiring the first impression of every edition published by ULAE in 1960 and still continues that tradition today. Its time-honored practice of artistic collaboration, quality, and technical experimentation has continued to keep ULAE in the forefront of contemporary printmaking in the U.S. and around the world for over 60 years.
“Since 1957 ULAE has produced masterworks with legendary artists including Johns, Frankenthaler, Rivers & Rauschenberg. Today they continue to collaborate with leading contemporary artists from Wyatt Kahn to Carmen Herrera, fueling the exponential growth of the print and edition world.”
