About this artwork

Adolf Dehn received his early artistic training in his native Minnesota before winning a prestigious scholarship to the Art Students League in New York. Imprisoned as a conscientious objector during World War I, he moved to Paris and Vienna after the war, making a living with the caricatures he published in Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and Vogue. His return to the United States coincided with the Great Depression, and like many Americans, he lived out the decade of the 1930s in poverty. During and after World War II, he turned to the medium of watercolor, capturing evocative landscapes of rural America such as this Florida scene.
