Adolf Dehn

July 13 @ 10:00 am - September 15 @ 4:00 pm

Prints & Watercolors

Adolf Dehn was one of the most notable lithographers of the 20th century, known for both his technical skills and his depictions of human eccentricities. Today, his work resides in over 80 museums, including every major museum in New York City. He holds the record for inclusion in the most Whitney Museum of American Art “Annual” and “Biennial” than any other artist to date.

Born in Waterville, Minnesota, in 1895, Adolf Dehn created artwork from an early age and after formal training began creating ink drawings and lithographs by 1920. His images of the Roaring ’20s, the Depression era and New York City appeared in magazines including Vanity Fair, Vogue and New Yorker. His lithographs spoofed all aspects of society, and his watercolors depicted beautiful landscapes.

On the heels of his success as a landscape watercolorist and chronicler of various American regions during the Depression, Dehn undertook several commercial commissions starting in the late 1940s, including Standard Oil. Dehn completed numerous drawings and watercolors of oil fields and industrial activities in Venezuela, Mexico, and Louisiana.
