Adolphe Dehn (1895 - 1968) was particularly associated with campaigns for social justice, and with caricatures such as New Masses. He did much of his work in lithography so these painterly colour studies are unusual.
See Catalogue Raisonné of his prints , Joycelyn Pang Lumsdaine and Thomas O'Sullivan. His papers and several interviews are with the Smithsonian Institite.
The catalogue entry, " Dehn speaks of his art training; military service; his drawings for THE MASSES, THE DIAL, PLAYBOY, BROOM, VANITY FAIR, and other publications; odd jobs; his European travels; his first wife, Mura Ziperovitch; the influence of Jules Pascin, George Grosz and Mayan art upon his work; his use of batik, lithography, watercolor, crayon-wash, casein, and gouache; exhibitions as Weyhe Gallery in New York City; and Federal Art Projects. He recalls Arnold Blanch, John Flanagan, Wanda Hazel Gág, Boardman Robinson, and others.
These interviews are part of the Archives of American Art Oral History Program, started in 1958 to document the history of the visual arts in the United States, primarily through interviews with artists, historians, dealers, critics and others."
