Open House: January 13, 4-7:30 p.m.

Werner Drewes (American, born Germany, 1899–1985) was a painter and printmaker who helped shape the role of abstraction in printmaking. The exhibition charts Drewes’ career from the Bauhaus to the United States around World War II, as well as his diverse artistic interests: ubiquitous American landscapes, such as skyscrapers and wheat processing plants; intimate self-portraits as the artist battles cancer and later recovers; and close studies of colorful abstract forms illustrate the rich creative world of a pivotal artist in American modernism. Highlights of the retrospective include 43 works that were recently gifted to the Academy Art Museum by Ms. Ingrid Rose.
