Drewes, Werner, Tree at Night, 1964. Woodblock in seven colors: 2 browns, black, blue, red, yellow and gray. (11 ¼ in x 16 in) on 19 ¼ in x 24 in sheet. Drewes said of this print: “Tree at Night is of a predominantly decorative nature. A relation of dark colors and a play of forms were used to bring forth the mystery of night when familiar objects become apparitions.” Werner Drewes (1899 – 1985) is considered one of the founding fathers of American abstraction. Trained at the Bauhaus, Drewes was one of the first to introduce the precepts of the Bauhaus in America. He attended the Staatliches Bauhaus Weimar where he studied under Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer and Johannes Itten. Titled, numbered, signed and dated by the artist. Fine. IGAS, Series 66, November 1965.
