    Art Brokerage: Werner Drewes German Artist: b. 1899-1985. 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. Drewes was a founding member of the American Abstract Artists Group that existed to foster public understanding and acceptance of abstraction in art. He taught painting and printmaking at Columbia University, the Brooklyn Museum, and later became a tenured professor at the Washington University, St. Louis. In 1972, he moved to the Washington, DC area where he kept a studio until his death in 1985. Listings wanted.
