Werner Gilles was born in 1894 in Rheydt near Mönchengladbach.  After World War I, Gilles became a student of Walther Klemm's at the "Weimarer Akademie", but in 1919 he transferred to the newly founded "Bauhaus", where he attended Lyonel Feininger's class.  Until 1923 the artist remained registered at this art and design school.  During this time, Werner Gilles was friends with Gerhard Marcks and Oskar Schlemmer.  In 1921-22 Gilles decided to travel to Italy for the first (showing 500 of 2033 characters).
