Adolf Dehn (1895-1968) was born in Waterville, MN. He attended the Minneapolis Art School for three years. There he received a scholarship to the Art Students League in New York for one year. He spent nearly all of the 1920s in Europe, working almost exclusively as a lithographer. In his prints, he alternated between poetic landscapes and satires of Jazz Age follies: Vienna cafes, Berlin opera houses, and Paris brothels. He spent most of this time in Vienna, but traveled to many countries.
