Printmaker, painter, and sculptor. A versatile and accomplished technician in both intaglio and relief processes, he is known particularly for prints that combine representational and abstract form in bold compositions. His images embrace a wide range of themes, including architecture, nature, the history of art, religion, and politics. Born in Telluride, Colorado, Rudy Otto Pozzatti served in the U.S. Army for three years before graduating in 1948 from the University of Colorado in Boulder and earning an MFA two years later. His teachers there included Max Beckmann and Ben Shahn. During a visit to Italy in 1952, he first encountered the rich architectural and artistic legacy that has inspired many prints. From 1956 until retirement in 1991 he taught at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he continues to reside.
