Karl Schrag, painter, printmaker, and teacher, was born on December 7, 1912, in Karlsruhe, Germany. As a boy, Schrag's health was fragile, which limited his participation in physical activities with his friends and family, so he turned to reading and drawing. He made his first linocut in 1926, at the age of fourteen.

Schrag taught at Brooklyn College from 1953 to 1954 and at Copper Union from 1954 to 1968. He had his first retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum in 1960, the most recent at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine in 1992. His work is represented in museums across the United States and Europe, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Academy Museum, the British Museum London and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
