Werner Drewes was born in 1899 in Canig, Germany. Drewes is known as a printmaker, painter, and educator. He is highly regarded for his contributions to the development of American abstract art, especially in printmaking. His work is often associated with the rise of abstraction, cubism, and geometric dynamism. He was heavily influenced by his fellow artists of the Bauhaus, especially Kandinsky. Drewes’ particular style of abstraction is considered more emotional and more closely based on natural forms than many of his contemporaries. Drewes was concerned with the human side of abstraction and engaged with the lived world instead of turning to sterility. His work is included in many major institutions across the United States.
