Biography: 1899 - 1985. Werner Drewes received his first instruction in art as a child in the village of Conig, East Germany, where he was born in 1899. He served in World War I, after which he had his first formal training at Stuttgart where he studied architecture and design. He later studied under Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, and Johannes Itten at the Bauhaus at Weimar.In 1923, the artist traveled throughout Europe studying the work of the Old Masters. While in Italy, Drewes married and the couple continued traveling through Europe and then on the South and Central America. They continued on crossing the United States and then on to Korea, Japan, Manchuria, and Russia. The couple ended their travels in Berlin and Drewes resumed studies at the Bauhaus and then at Dessau. He also studied privately with Wassily Kandinsky and attended Hinnerk Sheper's mural tutorials.In 1930, Drewes and his family relocated to New York where he continued to work simultaneously in representational and abstract styles. The following year, he was introduced to a co-founder of the Societe Anonyme, Katherine Dreier, by Kandinsky. The introduction proved to be fruitful resulting in the first of several exhibitions with the Societe. The artist instructed in drawing and printmaking at the Brooklyn Museum School between 1934 and 1936. He joined the American Artists' Congress and became a founding member of the American Abstract Artists in 1937. That same year, he obtained United States citizenship.In 1940 and 1941, Drewes was the director of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) Graphic Arts Division in New York. Drewes returned to teaching at the Brooklyn Museum School in 1944. He also produced experimental intaglio prints as a member of Stanley William Hayter's Atelier 17. In 1945, the artist taught at the Institute of Design in Chicago. His longest held teaching position was at the School of Fine Arts at Washington University in St. Louis between 1946 and 1965. Throughout this time and into the 1970's, Drewes continued his work with printmaking as well as painted extensively. He passed away in 1985 in Reston, Virginia.
