Often credited with bringing the Bauhaus aesthetic to America, Werner Drewes created paintings, collages, woodcuts, and etchings in a variety of abstract styles. Trained as an architect at the Bauhaus, Drewes merged concerns with art, craft, and functionalism with Synthetic Cubism in his early work, blending drawing and careful design in highly controlled abstractions. The rigorous design of these images evokes architecture and household objects in the manner of Cubism, but he would later turn towards a freer and more complete abstraction, drawing influence from Wassily Kandinsky.
