WALTER DEXEL

 Walter Dexel was not restricted to panel paintings but also worked as a typographer, an advertising designer and designed interiors and stage settings. In 1928 he wrote a book entitled “Das Wohnhaus von Heute” together with his wife Grete Dexel, which reflects the artist’s interest in the issues of modern living, which the artist showed from an early age. In 1921 he developed a close friendship with the Dutch De Stijl artist Théo van Doesburg. During the same year Dexel had several exhibitions at Herwarth Walden’s Berlin gallery “Der Sturm”.
