A fine strong impression.

Drewes, who studied at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau during the ¡¯20¡äs, with Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, and Lyonel Feininger, came to the United States in 1930. His early work reflects the Bauhaus emphasis on abstraction, together with an element of German Expressionism; this was a major departure from the conservative and conventional tendencies of ¡¯30¡äs artists in the US. But he became force in American art ¨C he taught at the Brooklyn Museum and Columbia, was named director of the WPA¡¯s New York graphic division, and was a founding member of Abstract American Artists.
